Most quilt patterns include a border sized to fit that particular quilt. Have you ever wished you could adapt a special border pattern to any quilt? Now you can! The clear, high-definition video shows you how to create the scrappy pieced border with squares and setting triangles. Then, Gyleen explains how to calculate a float border that magically makes the pieced border fit any size quilt! With her easy-to-follow worksheet included in the class pattern, you can calculate the float border measurements to apply the pieced border included in this class to any quilt!

  • Combine solid and print scraps to make a colorful border.
  • Learn how to size a pieced border to any quilt.
  • Sew a stunning pieced border made with squares and setting triangles.
  • Calculate a float border that comes between the body of your quilt and the pieced border.
