SAHR - Border #1 - September

Stay-at-home-Robiners:  Get out your rotary cutter and let's get started.  Have you posted you center block on the flickr site yet?  Have you checked out the others?  It's not too late to join us.


For our first border, we’re going to make a 3” border incorporating TRIANGLES. Stop and think of how many triangles you can find in quilting. You could do an entire border made of HST’s. Or how about some hourglass blocks? Or you can incorporate almost any star pattern. You can use 2 triangles or 100. I spend a lot of time at Google Images, and you can look there for inspiration, or also on other flickr groups.

I have a plan - do you?  The next assignment will not be made until October 1, so you have plenty of time to design and sew.  Always remember, the only rule is that you have fun!

Counting my blessings ... and my borders ....  Sunny
