23 Stunning Quilt Border Ideas To Inspire You

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.
  • Offers a visual stopping point before you bind off the quilt.
  • 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.
