25 Stunning Quilt Border Ideas To Inspire You

quilt border ideas

Your eye is naturally drawn to the beautiful design in the center of your quilt. But that doesn't mean your quilt borders should be boring. In fact, the borders can enhance a quilt with a finishing touch that compliments the overall design.

The border of your quilt:

  • Frames the center of your design and gives it a finished look.
  • Helps you create the finished size of your quilt by adding a few inches.
  • Drapes over your bed and will be the first part of your quilt seen.

Rather than just adding a simple, straight border (nothing wrong with these, of course), why not think outside of the box?

To help you do that, we've provided some inspiration with 25 stunning quilt border ideas you can drool over — and perhaps borrow for your next quilt project.

Quilters like fat quarters, but they love free patterns even more.

How do we know that fat quarters are still popular with quilters?

Quilt shops typically have a section just for fat quarters, and will often offer to cut fat quarters from their bolts of fabrics.

Although other precuts such as jelly rolls and charm packs have increased in popularity, the fat quarter remains the base for many quilts.

It is quite typical for a traveling quilter to buy fat quarters, instead of yardage, as a token of their visit to a new place.

Are they concerned about finding a pattern for their new fat quarters?
