• Add at least twice the bor­der width to the bor­der lengths mea­sured or in­structed to cut. • Cen­ter and sew the side bor­ders to the quilt, be­gin­ning and end­ing stitch­ing 1/4" from the quilt cor­ner and back­stitch­ing (Fig­ure A). Re­peat with the top and bot­tom bor­ders. • Fold and pin quilt right sides to­gether at a 45-de­gree an­gle on one cor­ner (Fig­ure B). Place a straight­edge along the fold and lightly mark a line across the bor­der ends.

• Stitch along the line, back­stitch­ing to se­cure. Trim seam to 1/4" and press open (Fig­ure C).
