Ok, if you have troubles with chunk borders like I do, this lady has a bit on it at the end of her video. I may try this tip instead of doing the whole "measure in three places" jazz that never works for me...(if you look at my quilts you'll notice I never do chunk borders, for that reason!)
This is a whole quilt, but the border part is nearer to the end.
I always like Donna Jordan. Her instructions are always pretty practical. I've been doing borders very similar. Only difference is I fold the quilt in half, then in half again, so that the edges and the middle are together. That way I can see that the edges are the same as the middle. Sometimes I smooth it (slight stretch) to make them match. Then I cut the border as she shows just by laying it on the quilt and pin. It's handy because the edges are already there ready to pin. I haven't "measured" with numbers in forever. I figure why do math when you don't have to.

This is the way I have always cut my borders. I'm mathematically challenged so this works for me.
