Border quilting help, please


Recommended Posts

I have a quilt that has two borders on it, one 3 1/2" the other is about 5". I've done SID to stabalize the quilt. Now I think I want to do piano keys. My question is, "Have you ever done the piano keys straight accross two borders that have a SID done between them?" The fabrics are very busy, black and white, this stitching isn't going to show much but texture.

I decided to use Bonnie's approach. The crosshatch looks great.

Here is a tip if your ruler wants to slip on the fabric: Get some of that craft foam the kids love, with the sticky paper on back. That stuff is amazing! Easy to cut, the perfect thickness, the sticky makes it easy to add to your rulers and templates, and no more slipping! And it is so inexpensive.
