|I used the same fabric for the top and back of the border. The top strip I cut 4 1/2" wide, the back I cut 5 1/2" wide|
|I generously pinned the pieces right sides toward the quilt.|
|I stitched through all of the layers with a walking foot. I took a generous 1/4" seam.|
|I switched to a zigzag stitch|
|I butted together the batting with the edge of the quilt, where I had just added the border fabric. I then zigzag the seam allowance and batting together.|
|The batting in now firmly attached to the quilt.|
|Then flip the top and back border strips over the batting.|
|Press the borders. I actually pressed the back up into place, then flipped it over and press the top border into place.|
|I added the longer side borders first, then added the top and bottom borders.|
|I just need to quilt the borders and bind, then the first of my Storybook quilts is done!|
I'm linking up today with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday!
