Pieced Borders, Seminole Patchwork

Design Element

Needing to make my latest bed quilt larger I’ve added some extra borders and decided to make pieced rather than solid borders. Naturally Seminole Patchwork is one of these  extra borders.

I added a half 4-block at either end of the side strips to make them the correct length. And after attaching the top border I didn’t like the finished look.

So I had to come up with a better idea and I’ve settled on a single block at either end of the strip.

– Thus a design element was born! (At least that what Ive deceided to call it when Pland ‘A’ doesnt work and I have to come up with a Plan ‘B’).

There is always time to quilt!

    Absolutely love your site. So much to be inspired by. You make me feel guilty for the giant stash of fabric that sits idle and the 10 year old quilt top that has never been finished. I added a link to your site on mine and would be honored if you would grant me permission to use a photo with the link.
