The 10th Anniversary edition of this book offers twenty-seven different pieced border designs for quilts. Most are strip pieced but some are foundation pieced. Many of the borders use the methods familiar to us in Seminole patterns. The author stresses the necessity to plan the border before cutting any fabric. Each design gives measurements for both a wall hanging and a bed quilt, plus instructions for altering the border size. The advice on adding an inner border, so the outer border will have an unbroken pattern, requires careful reading. Clear diagrams show how to assemble the patterns and deal with tricky corner problems.* Patchwork & Quilting *
