I'm doing my first multiple border and instruction calls for each of the 5 borders (A B C D E) forming the real border to be cut from two WOF's for each side of the quilt. That's ok, but...
When A is sewn to B etc., and the whole border is ready to go, the next instruction is to center each one along each side of the quilt with overlap to make the mitered corners. That's ok, but..
What I'm wondering (it doesn't say in the pattern) is:
(a) Should I make a point to make sure that I match the seam at the A-A join with the B-B join and so on so that there is a single visible seam where the fabrics join up and it shows smack in the middle of each side of the quilt's the finished border, OR
(b) should I ignore the part about joining WOFS and instead try to sneak in mitered joins which are differently spaced for the A B C etc borders? That might look too piecey as there will be at least one random mitered join on each A B C etc line and therefore more than 5 separate joins on each side of the border?
(c) OR something else?
the pattern is Cherry Blossom Lane by Blank fabric and it is a 60"x60" quilt when finished, so I do need to make some joins.
Please do weigh in with your experience about best practice for multiple borders! I value your help so much-
