    Unfortunately, you can't avoid the border.....it either has to be there AND that width, or eliminated completely (which, maybe if you changed the background on the border blocks, could be an interesting alternative).

    FYI - on the sashing, assuming we're all are perfectionist when it comes to piecing (not me), in actuality, the top and bottom inner borders should be 2" wide FINISHED, while the side inner borders should be 2.25" wide FINISHED.

    It can all be eased in if they're cut the same width, but that's the way the math works out.

    Not to go OT, but just a side note since QuiltNan mentioned it a couple of times....

    For examples like this, EQ5 is just as good as EQ7.

    The one I worked up in EQ7 doesn't look any different than yours.
    I probably went about it and used the exact same menu options, etc. that you did.

    That's why in my posts when answering a thread on the subject, I sometimes suggest buying a used copy of EQ5 (which has no installation/security/registration* issues - and I always thought was stable enough - better than EQ6, for sure) as an alternative to buying the full new latest version, especially if budget was an issue, and/or the buyer wasn't "sure" it was worth it.

    And I'd venture that the majority of EQ users (regardless of the version) are doing the same sort of stuff like we did on this thread.

    I've seen amazing creations in EQ - I'm in awe - but there are, I'm sure, countless features that I'm not using because they don't pertain to the quilts I design and make, or I don't know about them.
    Yet. ;-)

    Sort of like Excel.....25+ years using it, from the beginning, and pretty intensively, and there's still stuff in there that's new to me.

    *Not that you can even upgrade to v7 off of EQ5 anyway, but I heard somewhere, not too long ago, that EQ's official file of EQ5 registered licenses (w/serial numbers) was kaput.

    Thanks for the practice. I designed mine in EQ7 it was fun playing! It will be a great scrap quilt! Uses a lot of 1.5 inch strips. Luann in CT

    Not sure if QuiltnNan or MTS are still checking in here but I was wondering if there is a way to make it a bit smaller (closer to a lap/throw size) and still have the border (on point 9 patches) work? I imagine there are only a limited number of sizes that this will work out correctly.

    It will work with almost any size center as long as you figure the inside border width correctly. That's why I love EQ so much; I can bump up the border width until it does match perfectly.

    In the version of the quilt on Elizabeth's site, are there two different colors of background used in the alternating quarter square triangles? I wondered if that was the reason to do QSTs instead of just setting squares.Or maybe I'm just seeing an illusion created by the quilting?

    Well, I'm neither QuiltnNan nor MTS, but here are the steps to get a pieced border to fit without using EQ.
    1. Measure the length and width of the top across the center. Subtract " from each measurement to get the finished length and width.
    2. Determine the number of border design repeats you'll need for each border. Round up any partial units for a whole number of repeats.
    3. Multiply the number of whole repeats by the length of the repeat unit to determine the actual finished length of each pieced border.
    4. Determine the width of the 'coping strips' (aka, the narrow inner border) needed to bring the quilt top up to the size of the borders.
    5. Add the corner square.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    You still have to be careful as it can look like the blocks are fitting in the border but don't really.

    I usually resort to scribbling on paper just to double check.

    Case in point - this quilt today.

    The version I created and was playing with was a rectangle (I was trying to duplicate the quilt in the picture)- I had the layout set at 8x9 double 9-patch blocks, each block was 9".

    I originally had 19 blocks (just by hitting the arrow to increase the number of blocks) for the vertical borders and it looked fine, but it really wasn't.
    It needed to be 20, and the top and bottom borders needed to be reduced by .5" to make it come out perfectly (mathematically).

    Exactly, you can see the seam lines if you zoom in on the border in the picture.

    For me it's usually a toss-up on which method to use...is it a scrappy background? would the fabric cuts stand out too much? how I'm feeling that day?
    I don't think one is harder or more work than the other...it sort of balances out.

    What do you call a throw size?

    The one below is 67.5" x77" (as shown, not including the outside solid border).
    You can add that on...or not and just bind it.

    I alternated the coloring for the double-9-patch blocks so you can see them more easily.
    The block layout is 6x7.

    The inner borders are FINISHED 2.75" on the sides, and FINISHED 2.5" top and bottom.
    Again, over the distance, it could certainly be eased in.

    If you have an different approx measurement in mind (or shape - do prefer square?), post and I'll get as close to it as I can.

    MTS, thanks for helping so much. The 67.5 by 77 is really a perfect size for me. I can't open your attachment. I get an Invalid Attachment specified message. Not sure what that is?? I would love to see your image and print it with your math calculations for when I make this quilt. I dreamt about it last night for hours so I definately have to make it.

    So weird.
    I saw the pic when I posted it - at least I think I did.
    I'm beginning to think the trick is that you have to post ALL the pictures first before you add anything to the reply box, and then add your text around the pictures.

    Let's try again.

    FYI - for this coloration and size , according to EQ, you will need the following yardage:

    Background - 5-1/4
    Purple - 2-1/4 (incl inner border, excl outer border).
    Red - 3/4

    Please note the background amount is a bit inflated because of the way EQ calculates yardage of the triangles and squares on point.

    Thanks MTS, that is great. I have copied and saved to a word file. I think it looks so neat with the 9 patches on point around the outside border!!!

    Looks like a single Irish chain to me.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    The 9-patch is not on point.
    I also assume it's a 3" finished block alternated with a 3" finished (cut 3 1/2) white square.

    Your Omigosh is gorgeous! I love the bright colors you've chosen and your piecing is perfect. Please share finished pics!

    All the quilts are great and they look like Irish chains to me.

    To calculate the size of the setting triangles for the border you can go to this website http://www.ctpubblog.com/2010/08/03/...ing-triangles/
    They give a fairly simple explanation.
    For those who wonder why they are using 1.414, it's because that is the approximate square root of 2. The length of the diagonal of a square is the length of one of its sides multiplied by the square root of two. This is all based on the Pythagorean Theorem.

    Its looks like a 9 patch with the plain color being like an x on the block and then a plain white block. The borders look like its a triangle then the 9 patch and another triangle, its put together with a 45 Degree angle I made a border with the same type of slant one time.

    I would say the interior of the quilt is a 9 patch and then a solid block, alternating. The border definately looks like the 9 patch on point --you can see the seam lines go across and form a "square" block.

    Quilt pattern

    It's a single Irish Chain in the center section, they are not on point in the center. A single Irish Chain is a nine patch block and a plain block, alternated. this one is scrappy...and I really like the on point blocks in the border.
    The attached picture shows a scrappy Irish Chain.
    This is one of my favorite patterns, simple to make, and can be very striking.

    I love the "Oh my gosh" quilt. Is that the name of a pattern? I would like to make that.
