Spooky Delights week 3 – borders

How did your centre go? Hope you have had fun getting to this point. We’re up to week 3 of the FQS Spooky Delights Quilt-along.

img_7495I was hoping to be able to show off a finished table runner today, but the week got away from me. No better excuse than spending time with my lovely family for Mother’s Day though! Hope all the mum’s got spoilt. ❤️

This week we are putting on our borders. Click here for the pattern.

In the interests of “keeping it real”, I’ll offer the following advice… Make sure you measure your centre before cutting your borders. I’d used my other machine to piece my pumpkins and forgot to change the settings so my centre was a bit smaller than it should be. I increased the width of my first border slightly to compensate and make sure that the pieced border would fit perfectly. Easy fix if you check before you cut!

The piecing of those little squares is a dream when chain piecing. Just sit and sew. Bliss!

Pretty happy with my table runner so far and even managed to baste it and get my backing and binding ready so I should be finished in no time. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see it all finished! Thanks for stopping by. You can follow my blog with bloglovin’ using the link at the top of this page. Don’t forget to visit Fat Quarter Shop’s Jolly Jabber and the other bloggers taking part in the sew-along too!
