Learn the Trick to Making This Thin Border Straight and Even!
Does your quilt need a small pop of an accent color? Or, do you want to create more definition between blocks? A 1/4″ border may be just what you’re looking for.
Apply the narrow border around blocks, around the outside of the body of the quilt or wherever it works best. The thin stripe created by the border can become an important design element when given the right color and placement.
However, the idea of creating such a thin border – and one that’s straight and even – sounds daunting. Fortunately, Elisa Richardson from Bits from the Scrap Basket has an easy solution.
Her tutorial will show you the trick to achieving a straight border of even width that’s just 1/4″ wide.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
