1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Diana Weber on April 15 2000
This book will teach you to think of quilt borders as an integral part of quilt design. It is truly imaginative and has many wonderful photos of quilts to inspire the quilter. However, I found the instructions very complicated and not for those with mathphobia. Still, I have used many of the book's border designs and just winged it with the calculations...still worked out fine.

This book is by far the best book published on pieced borders. Judy and Marsha are two of America's best quilt authorities and have really put their all into this book. You will find everything from the different types of pieced borders, to hundreds of graphics of different pieced borders to inspirational quilts with pieced borders - at least a dozen of which have complete instructions for several sizes each! As a quilt instructor myself, I find the book an invaluable resource. I have six students starting a Round Robin project this month and their "bible" will be "Pieced Borders" by Martin & McCloskey!

Find everything you need to know for planning and making your own pieced borders. How to choose a border, and how wide. What color to choose and how to sew long border strips ( and how not to) . The simplest pieced borders are often the best ones. How to make border patterns to fit diagonal blocks or add dimensions. Complete with color photos, charts, patterns and much more.

This is a top quality how-to quilt book for everyone who love to add pieced borders to their quilt tops. Instruction on design, fit and piecing are all excellent and indepth. Both templates & rotary cutting methods are included for many, many shapes & sizes. This book inspired me to create original quilts based on some of my favorite blocks! If you like to design your own quilts, you just have to own this book!!
