My mom-in-law told me about this on Friday and I looked it up and decided I wanted to try it on the project I'm working on now. Just out of curiosity, do a lot of you add this accent to your quilt tops, and if you do, do you have pictures of how it came out??

I have used it a lot and love the effects. It really frames a block. But I have also used it around the border. Just be careful to keep your 1/4" seam.

I've done that on my tote bags. It might make it more complicated for a Longarmer. But it would be cool!

I found this website...with an explanation: http://www.quiltpox.com/cgi-bin/glossary.pl#F

I should have mentioned that I was going to do it around the border...not sure if I want to pit between the blocks and the first border or between the first and second border...this is a small kitty quilt for the humane society, it has 9 four inch blocks, 1 inch sashing with cornerstones...I'm almost done sewing the the blocks and sashing together so I should get to start the borders today...

Not sure what you mean... :?
I'm guessing you mean an extra border?
Ahhhhh, thanks Dee. LOL, I was at first wondering if I was on a plumbing board all of a sudden. ;-)

That web site is great.. I had never heard of a flange.. but there are lots of other explanations on there which someone new may not otherwise know. thanks

I put one around a pillow top. It finished off the edge very nicely and made the pillow bigger than just the pillow form.

I was told to sew it on with a 1/8" seam allowance so that when you sew down the next border with a 1/4" seam allowance, it would cover the previous stitching. Think of it as a basting seam just to hold it in place.

And it does make a nice framing border but, if you are taking it to a long arm quilter, ask first if they will have trouble with a flange border.
