Sandy asked me to give her a hand with the border of her Postage Stamp Quilt. Of course I jumped at the chance because she did all the hard work and I get to do the easy part!First things first. I squared off the quilt because all those postage stamps made this top a little, shall we say, UNEVEN. Proof of my effort was this lovely pile of tangled redness. Next, I went on a fabric hunt. The ladies at the quilt shop suggested adding a thin, white inner border before adding the red outer border. I cut the white border at 2 inches and the red border at 6 inches but I think the white border is too wide next to the postage stamps. I’ll need to do a bit of un-sewing to re-cut the white border to 1.0-1.5 inches.
Sandy, I’ll be keeping your quilt top for a bit longer but I promise to send it your way soon!
