    Looking for a tutorial

    Hello all, I'm designing a quilt with a border that looks like the attached photo. Does anyone have a link to a tutorial that talks about the easiest way to construct this border. I'm not sure what it is called so haven't had a successful search on my own. Thanks.

    I immediately think of half square triangles put together.

    This is a Seminole border using 1/2 square triangles in the center...
    This site has some instructions. Just replace the centre with 1/2 square triangles and add a green square to one side and a black square to the other side and piece and trim as shown.

    This is where the On Point ruler will be very useful especially for a border.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Looks like flying geese sewn to make border.

    quilterscache.com They have a bunch of wonderful borders, including the one above, and it is all free. I use them frequently.

    I have done this and the best way is to make half square triangles using your favorite method. Then add a triangle to two sides. Looking at the pattern at an angle you can see the piece. Sew them in the strip.

    Of course you must do the math!

    How I would assemble it:

    I would play around a bit with how to press the seams to minimize bulk.

    I used to mark the seam lines so I knew where to line up the triangles - and then pin the pieces together after lining up the markings. It minimized the aggravation.

    There are probably a zillion other ways - but that is how I think I would start assembling it.
