Halloween Sudoku - Border Solution -

I decided to go with the orange with black spiders -

It definitely said "Halloween" -

And went well with the fabrics in the center portion of the quilt - ;))

The size of the fat quarter determined the width of the borders -
And I won't bore you with the MATH -
That dreaded four-letter word -

But I measured and cut from the short end of the fat quarter -
Leaving a strip on the selvage edge to use for the corner squares -
Then cut four strips for the sides and top and bottom -
Leaving an extra bit for the scrap bin -

I added black sashing strips to the ends of the borders -

Laid the side borders out to check the fit -

And cut the corner squares - ;))

After adding the side borders -

I sewed the corner squares to the top and bottom borders -

Sewed them on -
And got this -

Ta Dah! - ;))

Here's a close-up of the top left corner -

It's not exactly like the one Judy Sisneros uses in her book -
"9-Patch Pizzazz" - (c) 2006 - C&T Publishing, Inc. -

Because I had to tweak it to work with a sashing/cornerstone configuration -
As opposed to a simple inner border -

But I think it worked out pretty well - ;))

Not bad for making it up as I went along, huh? - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Thanks, Jocelyn - you come up as a "no-reply" blogger - and I have no idea how to find your email address in Google+ - so i will answer your comment here if you don't mind.

I am so glad that it actually worked out. Sometimes the picture in my head looks better than it does in "real life" - ;))
