    Rhonda's Electric Quilt Class - Week 12 - Borders

    This week we are going to look at Borders You need to start with a quilt on the worktable.

    Then click on Borders at the bottom left hand corner of your quilt

    Then you can add a border or as many as you
    want to. In the list of borders just choose the one you want to use.
    There are several you can try out and see which ones you like.

    Once you have added a border then you need to choose how big you want it to be.

    You can add as many as you want and you can delete any of them you want. Just use the arrows beside the number(sorry it is kind of under the arrow I drew) to choose which border you want to work on.

    You can also insert a border between the borders you already have on your quilt.

    Here I chose to use Blocks in this border. You then need to choose the size. I just used the tabs( you can see them under the words Left Top Right and Bottom) to pull the border out til the blocks looked square to me.

    Then choose how many blocks you want in the border. This should be done before you square them up. If you choose to square them.

    You can check on All and lock the tabs so when you move one of them they all move at the same time.

    Then I added quilt blocks to my squares in the borders.
    You have to have your quilt blocks made up in the Blocks part. (Class 4)

    If you want to change any of the parameters of the borders you can click on File and then click on Preferences.

    I might have just missed you mentioning this Rhonda but how do you go back if you change your mind. Umm. Hmm. that didn't make much sense. Let me try again. After you have your quilt layout all done with your borders on it etc and saved, you decide at a later date you want to add another inner border. I tried to do that one time and it just didn't put the border where I wanted it to be. LOL Notice I said that "it" didn't put it....I was expecting to see that little phrase that computers love so much pop up. You know the one...."operator error". So my question is really where do you have to click to add an inner border later on.
    Happy Quilting!

    Bonni go back and look at the buttons under the add/delete borders section. You will see insert on the right hand side of those buttons. Click on your borders where you want the new border to go and then click on insert. It should put a new border in the middle between the existing borders. I have done it just to check it out and it worked for me.

    It seems to put the new border in front of the border you highlight. This is EQ7 so I presume it will be the same in all the versions.
