2019 BOM – Begonia: November

When it comes to borders, the possibilities are endless! This post is only going to talk about basic (non-pieced) borders, but you should add whatever kind of border makes your heart happy 🙂

Basic Border Steps – Finished Size: 72″x 72″

  1. Cut (8) – 3.5” x WOF strips
  2. Sew ends of 2 strips together to make 1 long strip of fabric.
  3. Repeat with remaining strips to create (4) border strips.
  4. Attach first 2 strips to opposite sides.
  5. Press seams to the outside and trim.
  6. Attach 2 remaining strips to unbordered sides and press.

Here is a simple graphic showing the dimensions for borders to make 3 different finished sizes: Throw, Twin, and Bed. To make one of the larger sizes follow the steps above, using 12.5″x WOF strips where needed.


If you’d like more information on attaching borders, I have gathered 3 different resources:
