Design Wall Monday - Quilting maths is a hard task

Today on my design wall I have my Penelope's Paradise quilt. The top is finally finished. Last week I sewed the inner border and asked for some advice about making a pieced outer border. I decided to make a piano border but...Quilting maths is no walk in the park. I had never made a pieced border before and it was quite a challenge.

It's not perfect but I'm quite happy with the final result

I have to thank Heather from Lark Cottons, she is my sponsor and the fabrics came from her online shop. She has a new website and she's offering a 10% coupon until the end of the month. Visit her store and you'll love the wonderful selection of fabrics she carries as well as a great costumer service.


I also made two more granny squares, I've made 14 and only have more six to go
Share the projects you have on your design wall linking up with the lovely Judy at Patchwork Times.

Penelope's Paradise is beautiful! I LOVE the border. It doesn't look like it gave you any trouble at all. And the granny squares are just too darn cute.

Great work on the pieced border! If it isn't perfect, you will be the only one to know. Congratulations on trying something new.

Looks great and the pieced border is a nice finishing touch. I need to try those granny squares, they are really hot right now and look wonderful.
