    Recently someone mentioned putting a stop border on her quilt. This is new terminology to me. Will someone explain it, please?

    do you remember where you saw it? Maybe we can figure it out if we could read the thread.

    A stop border is just a narrow inner border that is placed between the body of the quilt and a wider outer border.

    when working on a recent round robin, i had to put a 'stop-border' on the medalian before i could add my border...it was necessary because the border before mine was busy and needed to be 'stopped' before my additions could be added

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! It bugged me that I could not find it in my reference books, and no one local could tell me what it was. Now I know what it is, and realize that I have actually used one without realizing what it was.
