Floating Square Border Tutorial from Lorraine H.
We have another tutorial, offered to us from Lorraine H. Sadly this Tutorial just didn't want to play, let alone nicely.
The shared file would not co-operate at all, tried everything known to man - yep even the Darling couldn't work with it.
So after trying my hand at drawing up sketches, a very sad event (g), decided nothing for it but to make a unit and photograph the steps, easy....but not simple....the fabrics chosen are, believe it or not, tan homespun, dark green and light green, not as they show in the photographs as pink, blue and light green ...WHA??? How did that happen?
So sorry folks, as I am really time poor (destitute almost) at the moment, we are going with what there is, if nothing else you will get a laugh and even maybe perhaps be inspired to try the lovely border that Lorraine used in our 'Forest' raffle quilt. It may look complicated but believe me, really simple sewing, lots of it is strip piecing and only two lots of seams to butt together in each unit.
So pop up to the 'Tutorials and Directions from Members' Tab under our banner for some inspiration and a laugh......why oh why didn't I check those piccies as I went....ahh well.
