I would like to get your opinion as to how I should piece together a 5" border for the sides of a quilt I am making. The lengthwise measurement is 64" and the binding is cut in 45" pieces. Here are two ways I am considering using:
A. Add 19" to the 45" using a diagonal seam. This means that each side would have a seam about 2/3 of the way down.
B. Cut two of the 45" pieces into 32" segments and sew together with a diagonal seam. This way the seam would be right in the middle of the lengthwise piece.
The choice is a matter of appearance, obviously. I am sort of leaning toward option B. What do you think?
