Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Project 3 - Skinny Border

I've decided on a skinny yellow & fat blue border for the Spring Garden Trellis quilt.

The moment of truth was measuring for the borders.

I was delighted to find that both the width & the height measured the same at each side (although, interestingly, the middle in each instance was 1/4" less - I think that despited my best efforts, there was a bit of yanking about to match the seams on the larger runs) but even so, I'm very happy indeed with that.

So it hasn't been too tricky at all to pin & sew the borders on - but now I've exhausted my levels of concentration for this evening!

I'll quit whilst I'm ahead!


  1. The blue and yellow look very nice. You've made all the right choices for this quilt I think. At least it looks as if you did.

  2. It's looking great. I knew it was going to pretty accurate,with all the care, and starch, that was involved. Bias edges will never hold any fear for you in the future.

  3. Good choice Hazel, it looks great! And well done with the seams, you're a bona fide quilter now :o)

  4. Thank you girls! I owe a great deal to Charm Spray Starch (98p for an aerosol can from Wilko)!
