These are photos of the actual pair of blocks made in the previous section "G" which I call "Divided Half Triangles".
Remember, these blocks are no longer the same size as the blocks in the Nine Patch - Over/Under so you will need more blocks across to make the border. This approach gives a "scrappy" border and you will have to fudge a little for the fit. Leave blocks untrimmed until you lay them out to see how the arrangement will work.
The sample border arrangments shown below are not sewn, but were placed on a flannel design wall and photographed. All use the above 2 blocks (see the previous page for how to make these blocks).
Divided Half-Square arrangement #1
In this arrangement the print sections touch the smaller border along the top to form "stretched" M's. -or- on the side in wedges.
This above view is a longer strip of the "stretched M" border seen in the photo above.
This arrangement shows the wedges flush with the edge of the narrow border so they appear to form a more solid border of print fabric.
I hope these have given you some good ideas of how to border your quilt. Please share with all of us what you decided to do with a photo or two. We'd love to see your quilt in the Gallery.
To photo your quilt, try to hang it flat (perhaps off a railing or deck?) so that it photographs as a square and isn't distorted by laying it flat and photographing standing at the foot of it.
