I have sewn a string quilt using muslin as the foundation and have added a border that is 6 inches to it. Since the string squares are now thicker than the border what should I do to add weight to the border. I may not add any batting to this quilt since it is going to be fairly heavy as is. I like lighter weight quilts since it does not get to cold here for more than a few days at a time. I will probably quilt a simple meander overall on this quilt. Thanks for any input.
