Borders are so simple, once you get the hang if them. Would like to share my "hang" with you now!
I start by creating a block. Am a creature of habit and like my borders 6" total. Block size : 6".
Next I fill the block. Wider border is one color....
Sashing is 1" of a different color. I save as "6inchtotal."
Now for the corner blocks. All I need to make it look as though the Sashing travels around the quilt is a singe 1" square. Named this one.....6inchcorner!
The fun part...designing my quilt. I love the fact that I can create blocks cut able with my Accuquilt. I have most of the bits to create 12" blocks, so that is what I make. After creating my layout center I turn on my border. It just so happens that these border blocks are half the size of my main blocks----or 6".
I added the center blocks and arranged them.
Finally, I added the blocks named 6inchtotal. Arranging them so that the Sashing strip lay next to the quilt was easy.
✏️I added the blocks.

✏️Added the corners. Turned until yellow square followed the Sashing
And the final edition.....
Until next time!
