Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Great idea for a border. I'm always looking at tile work and thinking quilt patterns too. Thanks for sharing.
Glad you like the idea, howevr not being used to putting small pieces of fabric together it did kindof challenge me as to how to do this.
Was I correct in the way I put it together.
Very pretty Elle! It sounds like it would work the way you put it together. Are you going to do the little square in a square block? It looks tiny!
Yes this would make a beautiful border. I would assemble like seminole piecing. I would make one strip unit consisting of 1 1/2" strips of cream, brown, black, brown then cream again. Once all assembled I would cut this stip set into 1 1/2" units. The other strip set would be more complicated because you need to piece all those little brown squares in a black square that would measure 1 1/2" square unfinished, easier if you PP or just increase the sizes but for the sake of explaining lets keep it at 1 1/2". Then to those you would need to attach a stip of cream to either side 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" wide or 3" to be safe. Assemble the two units by lining up to your square in a square. Once you have your border done, lop off the pointy bits.
Wow, Elle, that is really a great idea for a border.
and I thinkff has it right about the way to go about it.
Isn't amazing how we quilters can always see quilt patterns in almost everything we see? Now if I could just figure out the measurements!
Okay here are the measurements.
Each square is 1" finished. the little Dk cream block in the middle of the black is just a titch over 1/2"
The tile is 13" long. The cream HST is 1 1/2" from the brownish line to the point. It measures a titch over 2 1/2" from the top of each brown marble square.
Hope that makes sense. Heh you all like it, I thought it was really neat and different.
