Borders Done Right!!!

Ruffle borders after ...

Notice the picture of the borders in the previous post...

See how they ruffle...my customer did 4 borders and didn't measure 3X to get the average and then cut her borders to the correct size and pin them together from the middle out...and boy did they ruffle!

I had to give the quilt back and she was very gracious about fixing it and man what a difference.  She said she cut 42" off the borders...there are 4 borders that makes almost 3" off each one (there are 16 border pieces total). 

Her quilt is now AMAZING!!!  See latest post...  Woot woot!!

Wow, I love the colors in this quilt! It is beautiful. I started a quilt many years ago, but never finished it. Maybe I should pull that out and get it done!

I inherited my husbands grandma's sewing equipment when she passed away. She made the loveliest quilts. I need to learn.

I love to quilt, but don't take enough time to do it. Your client has a wonderful bright quilt and I bet she is glad to have it finished. I live in Fredericksburg, VA - we are almost neighbors.

Beautiful quilt. I really should pick up this old habit this winter - it's been a few years since I quilted. Hmmmmm! :)

Looks good, wish I could do this stuff!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

One of my dear friends is a quilter and she takes a lot of classes to try new techniques. I admire y'all!

Learning to quilt is one of the things I had time to do. Maybe after the kids get older. lol

My grandma makes quilts, my mom does too! Unfortunately, I am not a sewer.

I wish I could sew... my daughter has been begging for a class so she can make her own clothing she wants to be a fashion designer.
