When the fabric just isn’t long enough what do you do? Valerie has a neat answer.
In this workshop Valerie discusses what to do when the fabric isn’t long enough to go down (or across) the quilt all in one go – where do you put the join maybe?
Valerie tries to avoid having a short piece of fabric at the end of the border and one of the simple ways of doing this is to add cornerstones.
If you have an even amount of several fabrics what can you do as a border? Again Valerie has the answer – you can strip piece them and then again add cornerstones.
The end result means that it looks like you thought about the borders rather than having them as an afterthought around the quilt centre.
