Bought this book mainly for the border designs. It is well written, accurate, and the border I used turned out beautifully. There are also quilt patterns in the book.

Judy is the border Queen!! Feb. 24 2012
By J. Olsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have Judy's book "Weekend Quilts" and was impressed with her border treatments on the quilts featured there. When I saw that she had a book coming out just for borders, I had to get it. But there is a bonus. It includes 15 quilt patterns, which in and of themselves are fun layouts. They aren't just traditional layouts in new fabrics. They may use traditional blocks, but in fresh layouts and combinations. There are no difficulty ratings, but you won't find applique, set-in seams, or curved seams here. There are, however, some patterns with many little pieces that might challenge a beginner. If they focus well, though, they could do it. There are also some simple patterns that a beginner could enjoy. After the quilt patterns we find the section that this book is all about. Each of the 15 quilts is paired with 4 different border options. The title doesn't lie--60 borders in all! How cool is that? They are made from triangle, strips and squares and directions are well-written and clearly illustrated. I appreciated that there are instructions on how to adapt the borders to any quilts. Judy uses primarily bright tone-on-tone prints for her quilts. Those are not my fabrics of choice, but lets face it--a beautiful quilt is a beautiful quilt, no matter your fabric preferences, and Judy makes beautiful quilts, made all the more beautiful by her creative borders. This is a keeper! I appreciate a job well done!

Great Book June 8 2012
By mac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has so many great ideas for borders to spruce up any quilt. And a good formula for determining the number of blocks needed for the border. A great way to bring quilts to the next level, rather than using a plain border.

Using this book will make your quilts standouts. Nov. 27 2012
By Joanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book for all levels of quilters that will help them take their quilts from very nice to spectacular. While the title of the book seems to indicate that it consists of only 60 pieced border patterns, amazing as that is in and of itself; there are actually 15 complete quilt patterns included, each with 4 suggested border options.

Quilters who believe that their quilts look too bland will be inspired by many of these pieced borders. Feeling guilty about using panels for quick quilts? Add a couple of pieced borders to perk them up. Flummoxed by what to do with a wonderful medallion center? Add some pieced borders to make it look richer. Have a challenge quilt in the making and not sure what to do? Choose some of these pieced borders and stun your fellow guild members.

This book is a keeper that will be used over and over again.

Borders With a View Dec 29 2012
By Chrengel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From my perspective, borders are to quilts what frames are to pictures. They can become a distraction, a simple neutral finishing necessity or a surround that lights the entire creation. The author of this book provides examples of simple borders using color to "pop" the quilted creation. She also provides 60 designs of pieced quilt borders again with color popping enhancement. In the next section of the book, patterns are included of quilts combined with 60 pieced border designs. It was most helpful to see how both a design element and color was pulled from a quilt and used in the border completing the quilt's striking quality as a whole.
Another useful feature in the book is a mathematical formula of measurements which enables one to produce a pieced border that exactly fits the size of the quilt! I loved how this book provided a view of borders creatively framed with elements of color, design and practical technique.
