    Okay, I'm new to this quilting. I wonder how you put another border on after you have trimmed the batting and backing? This would have helped when I made a panel piece and cut it out before realizing it needed additional borders to make it more balanced.

    I would lay the new border on the top of the quilt(right sides tog.), raw edges matching. then pin the back border and the batting piece on the back, matching edges. sew and press the new borders away from quilt. your dand wich would look like this:

    new border
    quilt
    backing strip
    batting

    If you've ever done one of the 6 hour quilts using kaye woods it would be the same idea.

    I haven't done the batting and backing yet.

    I have thought of trying this out and I think I just found my inspiration. Thank you Patrice! It is wonderful!

    Ok, I'll bite, how do you make those raised pinwheels? Must involve folding the fabric over but what do you start with? Love the look.

    This is a beautiful quilt and well done also. I love the idea of the yo-yo's but whichever you decide it will be really nice. I also agree that an additional border would really enhance the quilt. Great job!

    Patrice---lovely quilt and thanks for the tutorial on them. I think a second border and the buttons would really make this quilt pop. I love the design. I so love pinwheels, but this goes one better. LOVELY!
