Corners, corners, corners

I've decided to sew the pieces of the border together in an uneven pattern and add the border after I quilt it. I'm wondering if this will work but I'm now committed to trying it. It is light weight, small and easy quilting since the center of the piece was not attached. At least that was one positive to this crazy experiment.

Was I thinking when I chose to make the edge uneven? Of course, not. At least I wasn't thinking about the 60 inside and outside corners that I would soon be binding. If this turns out, it better be super.

I will be binding both edges of the quilted border, the inside edge and the outside edge, before I add the border to the completed quilted center. Please, tell me this is going to work.


  1. I'll be interested to see how this works for you. I often quilt my flower quilts then want to add more in the way of borders which becomes a problem figuring out batting & backing. Are you picking up some of that orange fabric in your inside border?

  2. I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around your new border concept, but if anyone can do it Sharon - it's you :-)! I can't wait to hear all about it. Chris

  3. Chris, the lady who cut her quilts and put them back together with beads in between, this should be simple for you. Cheers for your incredible "crossings" quilts.
