NOTE: Your border measurements may be slightly different from ours. Read through this Bake Shop Basics post about borders and double check your sizing before you cut: Bake Shop Basics – Quilt Borders.

From background fabric, cut (7) 1″ x WOF strips. Remove selvedges, sew strips end-to-end, and subcut into the lengths listed above for Border 5.

From border fabric, cut (7) 3.5″ x WOF strips. Remove selvedges, sew strips end-to-end, and subcut into the lengths listed above for Border 6.

Prepare quilt top for borders with a light starch and press.

Border 5 (background fabric)

Sew 1″ x 66″ strips to the top and bottom of your medallion quilt. Press.

Sew 1″ x 67″ strips to each side of your medallion quilt. Press.

Border 6 (border fabric)

Sew 3.5″ x 67″ strips to the top and bottom of your medallion quilt. Press.

Sew 3.5″ x 72″ strips to each side of your medallion quilt. Press seams, lightly starch, and then press the whole top one more time.

Stay stitch around your entire quilt (sew 1/8″ from the outer edge) to keep it in good shape until you get it basted and quilted.

The medallion quilt should measure 72″ square.

Next Monday (August 6) come back for our Closing Ceremony! We will have some surprises and goodies for you to help you remember our time at Summer Camp.
