The first thing I have done to my quilt is to add three borders to the center section. The three borders were stitched together before the 1/8" inch inside border was appliqued to the quilt top. The inside border is only 1/8" wide and I find it much easier to applique something that small onto the background rather than seaming it. I can keep the it all even that way. I have problems when I seam those small borders and I can make them look really wiggly by only being off a thread or two if I stitch it with a regular seam.
Oh, by the way if you want to read about the making of the other two basket quilts and the center of this one just look back in my March 09 blogs where I started blogging about the making of them.
