Once I have the top of the quilt finished, I move on to making the border to frame the pattern. I typically draw upon the fabrics in the quilt to make the border so there is a balance, but sometimes I make other selections to jazz it up.
I take strips of the fabric and then cut them into squares and sew them to the background fabric, which in this case is light and white.
I then sew the color+white blocks on the bias to form a strip.
Next steps are to tack the batting and hand stitch the trim that links the back of the quilt to the front of the quilt.
