4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and thorough, but not for beginners 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ULTIMATE Pieced Border Book Nov. 2 2000
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!
