Over the weekend I got all of the blocks joined, then last night I got the borders added to my Storybook #2 quilt. On the front I used the same Fairy Frost as some of the blocks and small joining strip for the front border. On the back I used a contrasting dark fabric for the border. I will quilt it with a light purple thread. It should quilt up pretty quickly, I plan on using Leah Day's Spiral Ornament for the border motif.
I do like the QAYG method I used to add the border. Basically you add the front and back fabric, right sides toward your quilt and just stitch it on with a 1/4" seam. Then zigzag on a piece of batting to the raw edge of your quilt. Flip and press the border fabric over the batting and Voila borders!
But the week wouldn't be complete if I didn't at least attempt Leah's homework - What a Starry Mess.
