Sunday Social: Border 2

Welcome to another Sunday Social and the end of Week 2 of the Choose Your Own Adventure Quilt-Along!

NOTE: This is one post in a series of quilt-along posts. Start from the beginning with the first post {here}.

We have a lot going on at summer camp! If you are just joining in, this is where we are on our journey:

If you get lost along the way, just click on the Index tab at the top of the blog to see all of the links to the QAL posts in order.

Today’s post has the (very quick and easy!) instructions for Border 2 and then please pop over to our social accounts to see what everyone else is sewing together. You will find a TON of inspiration. Quilters are really taking this quilt and making it their own which is exactly what we hoped for when we designed it.

Now on to Border 2!

  • (2) 2″ x 27.5″ strips for top/bottom borders
  • (2) 2″ x 30.5″ strips for side borders

We suggest using background fabric for this border, but feel free to make it pop with a print!

Lightly starch and press your completed medallion center block + Round 1. Square it up to 27.5″ x 27.5″.

Sew 2″ x 27.5″ strips to the top and bottom of your block. Press.

Sew 2″ x 30.5″ strips to each side of your block. Press seams, lightly starch, and then press the whole block one more time.

The medallion quilt should measure 30.5″ square. And that’s it for this week! See you back here tomorrow for Round 3 – Path A.

    Hmmm, the fabric requirements at the beginning of the camp suggested 2 layer cakes and being sufficient and provided yardage requirements for background only. Am I really supposed to do this border by piecing together strips from my layer cakes? I am disappointed.

    • Hi Mary, Sorry you had some confusion about this! The fabric requirements assume you are using background fabrics for these rounds. The layer cakes (or fat quarters) are meant to be used for the rounds with pieced blocks (Path A and B). Please let us know if you have any other questions!

    I am loving this quilt along. It is my first attempt to pick and choose. I have trouble choosing so I am learning at lot by seeing other people’s work.

    I appreciate the updates and recaps. It really keeps my going on the path I want, and to reprint or print the pieces I missed.
