How does one finish an "inner border flap"?
I have a Mark Lipinski Mystery quilt that calls for it. He says cut strips of fabris to 1 1/2", iron them wrong sides together. Sew to quilt using a 1/8 " seam allowance. Add 5 inch border strips. On top? On the edge?
You lay the inner border raw edges to the quilt top and stitch the 1/8". Then attach the outer border as usual (right sides together, raw edges alligned). This gives you a narrow "flap" that lays between the pieced top and the border. Also known as a "flange".
I call it a framing border and love to use it on lots of quilts. I cut my strips 1-1/2" to 1-3/4". Fold in half and press with wrong sides together. Sew the strip along the edge you wish to frame with the fold towards the center and the raw edges of the center and strip together. Sew with 1/8" seam, then attach your borders over this as normal.
how do you deal with the corners?
