Before I cut the first piece of fabric, I create a border chart:
Then move the marked line down to the zero line again.
This quilt has 6 borders. The third border was a pieced border and that’s the very first one I made. Then I start with border #6. I make the side borders first, then lay them out of the way. Then I make the top and bottom pieces for border #6 and lay them right on top of the others. I do the same with #5, sides first, then top and bottom, then border #4, then stick the pieced borders on top, then do borders #2 and #1. Then I roll that all up and I have a border bundle.
Once the borders are all done, the blocks are made and it’s very quick to put the top together.
This method may not work for anyone but me but I love doing my borders first!
