    Hi there this looks easy enough for me to try and then I have a question which you may think is stupid. After you sew the strips together and the cut the squares what keep the stiching from coming apart. K all you experienced quilters don't laugh.

    If one does start to come apart (and mostly they don't) I either catch it with a stitch by hand or stick it under the needle and resew that end of the seam.
    When I get ready to sew the blocks together I sometimes sew(baste) along the raw edge to catch the seams so they won't come undone. but usually I don't need to. They don't seem to be a problem for the most part.

    Hi Katie... and I agree with you.. It never occurred to me that you could make a border so easily..

    Thanks, Rhonda!! You're a doll...

    You're welcome. The strip border is one of my favorites. You can use them for sashing too.

    Thank you! I made some placemats using this method. I really like your hotpads.
