I am quilting a quilt that has been beautifully pieced...but the borders are bountiful.  I am a relatively new quilter and have not really learned how to deal with this.  I am almost at the end and of course...now I have this extra fabric to deal with.  Are there any tricks??  Whatever you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!

I do as Ardelle suggests and generally pin baste the outer edge rather than machine baste.  I have one on the frame now that as I reach the bottom it is more and more evident that the borders weren't measured first.  This happens a lot.  :)  Sometimes you just have to go slow and even use your fingers to hold the fabric in place until you get some stitching in to avoid puckers or wrinkles.
