Easing in the border for the Bloomin' Rose


It's just my luck the blocks for the border sewn together almost fit. But, I'll still need to adjust and ease in the border. As you can see the border for this quilt is just a bit large. So, I'll need to go back over some seams and take a larger seam-instead of the usual 1/4 inch, in order to make this border fit, I'm going back over a couple of blocks and take about 1/2 to 5/8 inch seam then it'll ease in and fit!

Don't you just hate it when that happens...that is why I have become such a fan of piano key pieced borders (lots of options to make smaller or larger!)

Well that is just a snappy little method you've got there *s* I'll be sure to tuck that into my bag of tricks, too. It looks great - thanks.

This is going to be such a pretty quilt when you get the borders to behave! Can't wait to see it complete :)

I had to visit your blog after reading Nadine´s. She praised your Bloomin´Rose so much and I can see she had a good reason for it. It is very nice.
Easing in is something I practice quite often as well! Take care.

Do you ever add to the inner border instead? BTW - I too am a fan of the piano key borders - if at all, I have recently made several borderless quilts...

So cool to see this quilt come together step by step. A very charming look to this one. Sorry about the border hassle!

Your quilt is looking good. Darn, don't you just hate it when the border pieces don't want to fit in ... what is their problem! :o)
