Sensational Sets and Borders (Rodales Successful Quilting Library) by Sally Schneider

Introduction Quilters everywhere seem to want to know more about sets and borders. This isnt just a hunch--we know this because we asked! When the Rodale quilt editors surveyed quilters to find the tops they wanted to learn about, this duo was at the top of the list. Figuring out the most pleasing way to arrange the blocks together and then deciding what sort of border to use to finish the whole arrangement are not matters to take lightly. These two decisions affect how successful your finished quilt will be. But we noticed that there are very few books that help quilters explore all the creative setting and border possibilities, how to choose the best one for a particular quilt, and then how to actually sit down at the sewing machine and make it all happen. Theres a big gap in setting and border information, and we decided to fill it! Working as the editor on this book was doubly exciting because I love working with borders, plus Ive always wanted to explore setting options that go beyond the ordinary. Ive been a quiltmaker for more than 25 years now, and Ive added a lot of borders to quilts. When I first started quilting, I figured that all you had to do was cut a strop of fabric, sew it to the edge of the quilt, and trim off what was left over. As a result, many of my early quilts have very wavy borders, and no, the fullness often didnt quilt out. But once I learned the very simple basics of fitting borders to quilts, my finished pieces became much flatter, making them easier to baste, quilt, and bind.
