Playing with Borders

King's Crown Quilt  (See also: 15 December 2009)

This quilt motif was designed using a King's Crown block variation
I need to design borders for it.

What if I repeat a part of the motif and place it slightly away from the quilt using a grey spacer?

This is a good start.  Now it needs corners.

What if I add magenta squares in the corners?

I like this. The corners remind me of old-fashioned photo album picture corners.


  1. I like the way the plain border breaks the continuity of the pattern .... and the corners are great.

    I wonder if the plain grey spacer should be a bit wider?
