    Can You Tell Me How This Border is Constructed?

    I am wanting to make a quilt in the same pattern as the one featured on this page at the very bottom left side (white, lt blue and dark blue). I can't make out what the borders look like exactly so I can't tell what parts there are. Can anyone figure it out?

    Thanks.

    It's such a tiny image. I tried downloading the image and enlarging it, but it wasn't any clearer! Is there any way you could contact the owner of the quilter community website for help?

    It says that it was designed in EQ5 and I have it in EQ7 as well. Do you know anyone with this software? I don't know how to post it here. Hopefully someone who is a bit more computer literate with one of the EQ programs could help?
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    From what I can see it's something like this:

    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    What EasyPeezy posted is what it looks like to me. It's a half-square light blue triangle with a quarter-square white-and-blue triangle together. So you'd make an HST of white and blue, then make another HST with a square of light blue.

    Okay, that doesn't sound clear even to me. Like this:

    woody, I just got EQ7 a few weeks ago. I went through the tutorial videos but a week later was lost trying to design something. Is there a section that has already designed quilts in the program?? Did you find this exact quilt (with the featured border)? If so, can you let me know how I can find it? Thanks.

    Easy Peezy, thanks for the image. That is what I am just making out myself.

    There are pre-designed blocks in the library, and pre-designed borders as well. For a border, click on layout, then add a border. You can choose from several pre-made borders and adjust the size to get what you want.

    Pretty sure that border is in "The Border Workbook". If so, the book will give clear instructions for the math to make it fit your quilt. I'm not at home or I'd check.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    It can be made with Quarter square triangles with one half solid light blue and the other side half white and half dark blue. It can be seen by drawing a vertical line from each point down and then "seeing" the squares. All in color placement. I would not mind the extra sewing since it is an easy construction.
