    After talking about it and getting suggestions on color, playing with size and figuring out the "inset" I proudly layered and SIDed my little wall hanging with double batting as recommended to make the basketweave design stand out.

    Ahhhhhhhhh, ready for binding I thought; BUT WAIT, WHERE ARE THE BORDERS???

    So this will be QAYG with borders being added separately. Gonna be weird! Lucky its just for me!
    Will post when I figure out just how I'm going to do it.

    Something missing?

    Oh Have never done that but I can imagine that would be easy to do. Good luck. By the way love your colors.

    Just do QAYG sashings and don't worry about borders unless you need them to make the quilt bigger.

    Naw, it was just a trial that might find a space on the wall, so, thanks, I'll just put a wide binding on it!

    Looks like you have enough backing so that you can lay a piece of batting on it. then sew your border on to the quilt and backing, fold out, pin and quilt it. Then do the binding.

    Yes, actually that is batting with backing behind, so I will do a small border. Thanks for the idea.

    I have done this method to enlarge a quilt, do the flip and stitch deal....you have enough batting around for a narrow border. I'll try and explain....line up border fabric on side RST and stitch, flip them over and press, do the other side and then the top and bottom....I have also done this with a batting layer, backing, batting on back and then border fabric on top, flip open and press...clean as mud huh?

    Its OK without borders, but I like it with this one made from the same fabric as the little squares.

    For the folks that like it "without the borders", the white you see is the batting! Pardon the wrinkles in the photo - light at a bad angle. So here it is finished! What fun it was! May have to do a bed size one with all blues. The border and small squares are actually a beautiful dark purple, not navy as it looks here.

    Bordered!

    Its just a SID one to emphasize the "weaves". I used double batting also. Its a trial block about 16" square for me to learn "inset seams" with.
