I LOVE making borders - even if the border overwhelms the center, I LIKE when viewers look at the border and make comments, "Look what she did!" - whether it be positive or negative, that's the reaction I'm hoping for. My quilty friend's husband has frequently commented on my borders, so now, I have to carry on! Here's my plan for recent Kaleidoscope Quilt (laying on beigey carpeting).
These dogteeth are not as difficult as I had imagined, but require accuracy with cutting and sewing - there is little room for easing. Another border option was a quarter square, but I chose dogteeth, --- even that name, "dogteeth", adds to the fun, and repeats the shape in the kaleidoscope blocks!
