    Default Re: word/directional fabric as a border

    I always place them so they face the quilt body. I want to draw the eye into the quilt. If they face outwards, it sends the eye out and away from the quilt.

Hope this makes sense.

    I do it this way also. Otherwise you are giving your quilt a set top and bottom. It also makes better use of your border fabric by cutting across the WOF.
