Baste together. • Use the BERNINA Stitch Regulator to free-motion quilt the layers together. • Optional quilting-in-the-hoop embroidery may be added. • Piece 2 inner border strips, end to end, using a mitered seam for each side of the quilt. • Piece 2 outer border strips, end to end, using a mitered seam for each side of the quilt. • Center the inner border to the outer border matching centers, seam together.

• Repeat for 4 sets. It is okay for the ends to be uneven. The ends will be trimmed later. • Begin by centering a strip set to one side of the quilt top with the inner border strip to the quilt edge, right sides together. • Start ¼” in from the top edge of the quilt and stop ¼” from the bottom edge. Repeat for the other 3 sides. • Press the seams toward the border. • Fold so that 2 adjacent borders are right sides together. • Draw a 45º line starting at the inside corner of the border where the border seam ends out to the edge of the fabric.

• Sew the mitered corners on the drawn line to cre- ate the mitered corner. Trim fabric to 1/4" and press seam open for a neater corner. Next, embroider the remaining designs on the pieced quilt top. See page 14. Chloe Ivory/Blue Outer Border Inner Border Candice Blue Benartex Chloe Scallop the Outside Border • When finished quilting, lay the quilt flat on a cutting surface. • Scallop the edges by using the June Tailor Fancy Frame Ruler. Begin at the corners of the quilt. Lay the ruler so the 45º line is lined up with the mitered corner and the outside edge of the ruler is just in from the raw edge of the quilt. Draw a line along the outside edge of the first 9” scallop. • Move the ruler and position it adjacent to the first marking making sure that the 45º line is on the miter and draw an adjoining scallop.

• Repeat for all 4 corners. • Measure from the end of one corner scallop to the beginning of the next cor- ner scallop to determine how many 9” scallops can be placed. • Now draw in the remaining scallops “fudging” as necessary. • Cut the edge of the quilt in the scallop pattern follow- ing the drawn lines or using the edge of the ruler with a rotary cuter.
