    Ditto. I used that same fabric for borders. Ended up using corner stones at corners, your way looks soooo much nicer.

    Thank you. I thought about doing a book or a pattern but decided it took way too much time when I could be sewing. Since I've been doing this, it gives me a whole new perspective on fabrics for borders. I seem to be drawn to stripes. I will post the pictures of doing two borders at once. I especially like that because the borders are easier to sew together before adding to the quilt.

I'm also using a marker for the 1/4" dot markings which I would not do on an actual piece.

    This is simply "fussy cutting" the mitered borders. Seem like it takes a good bit to cut them, but it actually goes quickly and sewing is sooooooooo much faster. So here goes:

    Thank you for that great tutorial. I have printed it out to keep as a reference when I do my next quilt.
