Mitered Borders On

     I had planned to use a series of narrow borders around the one block tree and could not come up with a better idea so that is what I worked on today.   I was not excited about the plan but I’m very happy to say the borders are on. The colors in the photograph are not true but you can get the idea.  

I sewed the strips together in sets and then mitered them all at once.  For me, that is the easiest way to have put on a series of borders. The quilt top is about 66" by 92" or will finish twin size.  Tomorrow I will find a backing and be ready to sandwich and start quilting.  This quilt will never win any prizes but soon it will no longer be a UFO.


  1. I like it. Maybe I can do something like that with my OBW from retreat. It needs help.
