    Rounded Corners With Rounded Borders

    I made a Red and White Log Cabin Quilt that I intend to use as a spread for my bed. I've posted pictures here in the Pictures section. Since I posted those pictures, I've had requests from several fellow-quilters as to how the rounded corners with rounded borders was done. The tutorial attached explains how, together with photos as the process is completed. I'm still a newbie, this being only my second pieced-block quilt. The tutorial is attached as a pdf file, which also includes photos of the Red and White Log Cabin Quilt.

    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Smart idea. I do have one question though. How do you quilt. Loading onto long arm/ quilt frame or hand quilt with hoop?

    My quilting is either done on my Singer 201, or by hand. I can imagine it would present some obstacles, but not overwhelming obstacles to using a long arm.

    I use to round all the corners on bed quilts. I do like how the round corners look on the bed. Now I just miter the corners as I make smaller quilts.
