Quilting Lesson 4: The Borders.

This was the view that greeted me at this week's quilting lesson. Yum yum yum.


Two hours of laying out fabric ensured that no two fabrics touched. I say that as though I spent any time arranging them. I did not. It was all my student. Don't those colors just look fabulous? Doesn't the entire top (so far) look fabulous?

This lesson was all about borders, and we quickly got to work and cut out a crisp white inner border.

The outer border will be a pieced number using all of the top's fabrics, so there was more fabric to be cut.

Next week, we should have a completed top, and we'll get to basting and quilting! Woo woo!

In case you've missed the previous weeks, I'm working with a lovely lady on her very first quilt. If you'd like to read more, check out the fabric pull and cutting, the piecing, and the chopping and re-arranging of the DP9


  1. I think the whit is really going to frame out the top. Lovely! :)

  2. This is so beautiful. I'm waiting with baited breath to see how she decides to quilt it!

  3. Wow, those colors are amazing! Your student has excellent taste in fabric.

    Audrey, I'm so excited to see you teaching someone. It seems like only yesterday when you were learning from Karen. They grow up so fast! *Emo sniffle.*


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
