Sunday Social: Border 4

Welcome to the end of Week 4 of the Choose Your Own Adventure Quilt-Along! Today we have the instructions for Border 4.

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

We are once again checking in with all our sewers on Instagram, so scroll to the bottom of this post to see how other campers are coming along.

For instructions for the previous posts, click on the links below:

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.

  • (2) 2″ x 52.5″ strips for top/bottom borders
  • (2) 2″ x 55.5″ strips for side borders

NOTE: The fabric requirements were calculated to use background fabric for this border but feel free to make this border pop with a print! Cut (6) 2″ strips of border fabric, remove selvedges, sew strips end-to-end, and subcut the long strip into the lengths listed.

Lightly starch and press your completed medallion (center block + Round 1 + Round 2 + Round 3). Square it up to 52.5″ x 52.5″.

Sew 2″ x 52.5″ strips to the top and bottom of your medallion quilt. Press.

Sew 2″ x 55.5″ strips to each side of your medallion quilt. Press seams, lightly starch, and then press the whole top one more time.

The medallion quilt should measure 55.5″ square.

    This is an exciting trip to camp!! The directions are well written and there seems to be a feeling of joy and comradery among fellow campers that is not always found in our striving for perfection! The leadership of any group determines the personality of group, and I applaud you!!! I also appreciate your willingness to encourage us when we sometimes take a bit of a path of our own and celebrate our individuality! Love the borders that help forgive seam allowance differences! I am making a trip to the farm next door to camp–largely because I was gifted much fabric from a dear friend’s husband–part of it was a picture grouping of farm animals which are being used as cornerstones–so this quilt story is full of memories of good times quilting and going through fabric stores, dreaming of possibilities and yes, sometimes completing them!
