Design/Sew Quilt

Start New

Block Pattern - enter rectangle manually - 48 x 6 - continue - finished

Back arrow

Add/edit block - add block - standard block - enter rectangle manually - 6 x 6 - continue - move to snap on left side of rectangle (so it is your corner of the border) - finished

Copy block - touch corner square and move it to the other end of the border - finished


Add/Edit pattern - add pattern - block pattern - use current block and find the arc in geometrics folder and move it to curve around the corner with the start/stop in the centre of each side of the square - finished

Copy pattern - select arc - flip X -move to opposite corner - finished

Add pattern - block pattern - select block - touch rectangle - continue - find straight line in geometrics folder - move to centre and stretch to fit between the arcs - finished

Combine patterns - select left side arc (ensuring the Start/stop are the right way around) - continue - touch the straight line - continue - touch the right side arc - finished

Add pattern - path pattern - touch your path you have just created - continue - select catalogue and find Deb Geisler Daffodil border - continue

Touch repeats & change to 13

Touch height & change to 110%

When you are happy with the look of your border touch finished.

You now have a panto that will turn the corner for you.

Have a play with other types of line patterns & pantos that can follow a path. Some pantos will sit on one side of the path only and you may need to modify the path accordingly. Some will sit in the centre of the path etc

Also set up an entire 4 sides of a border and put a line pattern using straight lines & arcs for the corners and see your total result. You can split the pattern itself when you go to stitch it out to accomplish the stitching. You can also modify the sections as you come to them using the stretch function to ensure they all meet up & fit the actual quilt top after it has shrunk slightly from quilting as well.
