On the Border...

       "Border Prints" Not Just for Borders!

It's time to revisit BORDER PRINTS--
A while ago we shared this easy child's quilt made with a border print and a backing--that's it!  Border prints look great used for a "row" quilt like this!
      Cut a border print as a PANEL--add borders
with or without corner squares to make another quick gift for someone sweet.
      Some quilter's enjoy getting creative with  free motion quilting as much as or more than piecing--Spending LESS time on piecing means you have MORE time for machine quilting to make it special!

And of course--Border Prints are great for...well, BORDERS! Make it easy by doing just top and bottom borders with special strips--add a print for side borders.  
*Here are 2 examples using printed borders for top and bottom(2 different borders from the same bolt!)

   After cutting the borders--the fabric leftover will make cute coordinating bibs and burpcloths--or incorporate into blocks of the quilt.
    We used  our "Simply Rails 'n Strips Pattern ($3) -- using 12 blocks and a border for one of the quilts..


Here are border prints you will find at The Dusty Attic!
Keep Scrolling--after making my fancy collage--I decided to look for more border bolts--then after THAT picture I found ONE more cotton border and ONE more flannel border
