Hi!  I have been machine quilting for several years and recently started hand quilting with a group from my church.  Now I have volunteered to set together six embroidered blocks that have to be set together for the printed quilting design to work.  However, I need the finished quilt to measure about 90 inches by 100 inches.  Any ideas on how to add borders to get the width I need?

How big are the blocks? I assume that by the comment "set together" you mean that they must be sewn together so that they are  touching. That is a lot of fabric to add IMHO as straight borders. 

A Picture and sizes would be most helpful.

We need the size of the blocks and orientation.   Can they be set on point?  A picture would help a lot.
