I assembled my 10 hearts for sides and they are not matching in size to the middle section...I am off like a1".. Side border are too long?? What did I do? I cut my inside red border 1 1/4... Was that correct?

I also could not get the borders to work. I ended up taking off one heart from each border. I assume the width of the inner border is incorrect in the directions.

I completed piecing my top yesterday and boy do I LOVE it!!! The only thing is that I cut my inner strips at 1 1/4" as it said but had to take them off and replace them with strips that were cut 1 1/2". And I might add that I was sew happy that all the pieces that I used were from scraps!! Now to quilt it. Thanks for an awesome pattern to help get my scrap problem under control.
