What are you most proud of? Getting the borders on front and on back exactly aligned so I could straight stitch on each side of the narrow hot pink border on the patchwork side and have the stitching look straight on the wider border on the fish side.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Accurate cutting and stitching was a must in getting the two sides aligned, and when trying to align the two sides it helped to poke pins straight through at the corners and along the sides of the narrow border and check the reverse to make sure the opposite side border fabric really was equidistance from the seam.

Love your pattern and the bright blues! Amazing job of aligning borders. I can see where that would have taken a very long time to get just right. I'm wondering if there's a shortcut somewhere out there for doing this.

Do you have a pattern for this, if not what size strips are they thanks

I didn't use a pattern and neglected to record exactly what I did. Since I've already given this away as a gift I can't measure. But just looking at the photo and applying some basic math, I'd say the large center square probably finished to seven inches and the strips to 1.5 inches wide. I do recall that the inner border was half an inch in width. The outer border appears to be the same width as the strips. If my calculations are correct, that would make the entire runner finish to approximately 15.5 x 41 inches.
