Borders for Your First Sampler Quilt with Valerie Nesbitt
Your First Sampler Quilt Series with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 21-Feb-2019
This is the final stage of making the quilt top – adding two borders.
The first can be as a single strip with cornerstones, or you could echo the sashing and put this around – it’s when you have smaller pieces of fabric left.
Cornerstones add accuracy to your work by allowing you to have something to match up.
Joining for your border
The main border will need to either be joined, as the fabric is not long enough to go from edge to edge of your quilt, and we give a couple of options for this. Again cornerstones add accuracy and an interesting design element.
