Anne had started a table runner with pink and blue scraps from Jane but was having trouble finding fabrics for borders to finish it. I took a long look at my stash and finally settled on a blue tone on tone border, but it still needed a little zip so I wanted to include a thin green border before the final blue one.
tutorial from Barb Robson on how to make a thin border but until now didn't think to use it. I love it! It's so perfect for such a narrow trim (1/4") and adds a nice extra shot of colour. The trick is sewing the outer border from the wrong side of the quilt so that you are able to keep a consistent distance from the first line of stitching.
