    I have to make this border for a quilt I'm working on but don't know how to go about piecing it together. Can anyone give me a clue to how you would sew it together???

    this will be 8" wide by about 85" long

    I would piece this and I have placed a red line where I would make the different pieces to create this.

    I was hoping to do it without cutting up the pieces. I have already figured out the pieces and cut them out. I'm just not sure how to go at it for sewing them together.

    I would paper piece definitely, but I would have to study it and all before I could even begin to tell you how. And definitely make the black outside edges wider for any binding or seams or you will cut off the points on the diamind shapes.


    Argh! Wish I had EQ 7 to help. Guess an eraser works pretty good.

    I'm good as far as the outside is concerned because there is another outer border that goes on after this one.

    I think it could be sewn with using a diagonal set mind-set - with using shallow y-seams to attach the long strips.
