    Excellent demonstration of the narrow border application, a very difficult technique, for me at least! I learned a lot about both techniques. Even though I love paper piecing, I especially enjoyed the demo of the second method because I have never been able to make a narrow border that way all the way around the quilt. Thanks!

    The first method you demonstrated, you were very lucky to actually get your 1/4″ strip, as you did not fold back the paper and “add a 1/4” before cutting. It appeared that you would be on the very edge of the cut strip after sewing.
