My quilt has a Halloween theme and is almost all sewn together. At the bottom center of the quilt, the orange polka dot arc will be replaced with a cheddar and black striped arc to make the border uniform around the quilt.
If life had not intervened today, this would have been completely sewn together. It will have a tiny purple flange all around the outside edge and will be sewn down onto a gray and black striped outer border. It will have to be mitered, which normally I avoid like the plague, but I don't want anything visually to mar the outer border, such as cornerstones, so I will suck it up and miter the border for the effect.
Victoria is an excellent teacher. if ever you have the opportunity to take a workshop with her, jump at the chance! The classroom at the Quilt Museum was excellent and overall the experience was 100% positive.
