Floating Stars Quilt

© Janet Wickell

I often add a very dark, narrow border to my quilts first to frame their interiors, and then finish with one or more wider borders.

Border width is up to you, but I like for the largest border to be about 2/3 - 3/4 the width of a block. Experiment with the width and number of borders to see what looks best with each quilt.

When you're ready, measure and sew the borders and finish the quilt as desired.
