    Default inner boaders

    Just curious-if your putting an inner border on do you just sew the strips with a straight line or do you do a sew them together diagonally.

    If the any border (inner or outer) is a solid color (or a very small print) then a straight line. If it's a medium to large print, I will sew on a diagonal as I feel the seam shows less.

    This is exactly what I do. And now I feel like I'm doin' it right!

    It depends on how wide the border is. If it's 2.5" or less, I use a diagonal seam, regardless of whether it is a solid or print fabric. Wider borders, I do a straight seam.

    I do the same as Joy. Small borders = diagonal, larger borders = straight line.
