Border progress

The left border was sewn and attached
Here is how I joined the border sections together. I overlapped two sections and made sure they were straight.
I sliced thru the two sections.
Sewed the sections together and pressed the seam open. I added on the two remaining sections the same way then trimmed the border piece to the width I wanted.
After I sewed the border to the body of the quilt, I nipped off the corners of the seam in the seam allowance. I find this gets rid of a bit of the bulk. It seems like this wouldn't be necessary, but I find it does make a difference.
The right side border is sewn and trimmed so it is all ready to sew on the body of the quilt. So you know what I will be doing this weekend! Yes, finishing this top, pin basting and hopefully start quilting. Have a great weekend!
