T-shirt Quilts With Borders

A border is an aesthetic part of a T-shirt quilt. You have a choice to add one or not. A border is a frame that goes around the outside of the pieced T-shirt blocks. It is actually pieced as part of the quilt top. As such, the border is quilted, as is the rest of the quilt.

A border is on the face of a quilt and thus, you cannot see the border from the back of the quilt. Typically made from T-shirt fabric, a border can be a simple frame or it can be designed to accent the colors in the quilt. Borders can be various widths – from 2" to 12". They can be made from one solid color material or from pieced blocks of various colors.

Borders are optional, but can add a pizzazz to any T-shirt quilt.
