I don't have a picture of the quilts that I used it around the blocks, but I did use it in one of the borders of this quilt I made last year. It is still a UFO! Needs ta be quilted!

It's a DP9

The maroon border is 1/4 inch.
I felt that these borders toned down the bright quilt.

I'm hoping that the quilting will deemphasize the swastika. I did not plan on that happening!

The trick to making these borders is to put the 1/4 foot on the inside of the small border & run it along the seam. Most of the quilt goes through the neck of the machine 'cause you are doing it backwards. Clear as mud? Maybe I'll take a picture tomorrow.

It actually doesn't look busy at all, in fact it helps the eye see each block better. Here is a link to a gallery of Sylvia's Sampler quilt. Several of them use this method. http://www.sylviasbridalsampler.com/

I went & looked at that link. Oh such pretty quilts! The red & white one did demonstrate these tiny borders quite well. Thanks for the link! I've got some errands ta run today but I'll see about putting a little border on my Quilt Story Block & take picts later th'safternoon. This block didn't come out right so I'll make it into a pillow ta match the quilt & make another ta go in the quilt.
(Th'safternoon is exactly how I pronounce this afternoon. All one word with the s blending into the a!)

Is everyone watching QNS do her little happy dance--"Put your little foot, put your little foot ...." Oh so bright and cheerful QNS.

Jan your balance of colors is wonderful. I see complementary colors (orange/blue and red/green combo's) so nicely placed with the neutrals (browns/creams)

dublb--great teeny red border strip set in the blue Fusions fabric; and a cheery DP9 quilt to boot!

Anyone recognize any of these fabrics? Crazy string blocks are LO from PP'ing the PC blocks!http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...e-t181604.html

That black is accenting those blocks wonderfully!

QNS, great blocks, love your use of color. Your blocks have lots of movement and work so well together.

Fryguy, I don't think the black is overwhelming (Altho I use a lot of black and maybe don't notice it as much as others might). I think your blocks are really nice and have a nice balance to them.
