Borders and Quiltography

Hi, all! Again it has been awhile. Lots of completed projects....not too many quite, though. Hubby and I have been on vacation so in the airports I have entertained myself with Quiltography. Good fun!

Borders are so simple, once you get the hang if them. Would like to share my "hang" with you now!

๐Ÿ“ŒI start by creating a block. Am a creature of habit and like my borders 6" total. Block size : 6".

๐Ÿ“ŒNext I fill the block. Wider border is one color....

Sashing is 1" of a different color. I save as "6inchtotal."

๐Ÿ“ŒNow 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!

๐Ÿ“ŒThe 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".

๐Ÿ“ŒI added the center blocks and arranged them.

๐Ÿ“ŒFinally, I added the blocks named 6inchtotal. Arranging them so that the Sashing strip lay next to the quilt was easy.
✏️I added the blocks.
✏️While flashing, I tap the ๐Ÿ” curved arrow until the Sashing is on the
correct side.
✏️Added the corners. Turned until yellow square followed the Sashing

And the final edition.....

Until next time!
