Here is an overall view of the quilt border.
Below are some close ups. I have used some of my favourite fabrics in the strip pieces.
In the checkerboard section below notice how the light fabric pieces are not all made from the same fabric. Some are small dot, some are crowns. This detailing adds greatly to the visual interest of the quilt. These sections are constructed square by square, and not strip pieced. This means that each checkerboard is unique. Notice also that the coloured squares contain a range of colours from light to dark, which gives it depth and movement.
I hope you enjoyed looking at the border in detail. I adored making it. I felt as if I was creating a singing picture in fabric.
Happy sewing, Miriamx
