    I posted about weather to use a border between the blocks for this quilt and have decided that I want to but I am suck on what to due at the corners. The blocks are from a kit so I don't have any of the fabric used in them and the purble is a scrap from another quilt(i should be able to get more of that)

    I was going to use strips cut to the widths of the blocks but I 'm not sure how to cut the vertical strips. Normally I would use a small square of one of the block fabrics for the corners but I'm not sure how to work the border using all the same fabric to make it "pertty".

    How about solid purple and solid pink stars for the corners!

    I think it would be pretty even if you just used the purple. Contrasting corner stones are nice but not required.

    Cut the strips the width of the blocks and sew them on between each block, keeping the grain straight. when you have a row of them sewn together, you will know how long to cut the joining strips. I hope this answers your question. :D

    No suggestions, but I really like the quilt. Of course, I am partial to turles!
