    Would this border need to be quilted?

        Re: Border help?

        Now I'm again at a loss. What kind of quilting would be border-friendly and possible by a beginner quilter? Any suggestions would be very welcome.

        Once this creation is finished, I'll have to credit all of you, wonderful friends, and my generous sister!

        Thanks very much!

            Hi nativetexan.

            Thanks, I'll pass your compliment onto my sister. She's the quilt maker of that one.

              You could do a simple crosshatch.

                Hi Star lover, Could you fill me in.. what is a crosshatch? Straight line stitches for inner and outer limits of the black band? They cross in the middle, like an X? Thanks much!!!

                  Crosshatching is diagonal straight line stitching across 2 directions of the quilt. When I do crosshatching, I extend the lines into the border. A sample is this 9-P/Rail Fence baby quilt I made.Bo. Co. Fair - 9-P & Rail Fence - Aug. 2015 007.jpg

                      Thanks Star lover and JCY!

                      That is a great solution. I'll give it a go... stitching from point-to-point in both directions.

                        What color do you want the quilt to be? Generally speaking, the color of your quilt is the color of your border!

                        Basically, the border color is what your eyes say the dominant color is of the quilt.

                        My 2 cents: I think a grey border would be nice -- at least 3 - 4" wide.

                          Hi DramaMama,

                          Think a gray border would have been spectacular, but I have already added a black one. Believe me, I have plenty of 5 in squares left from my sisters stash. I'll try gray next time.
