We’re closing in on the end of Quiltmaker‘s Back to School Party! Today’s Step 5 will guide you to add the borders to your quilt center.
Dozens of Daisies Part 5
Sew the border #1 strips together and cut into 2 lengths of 51″ for the sides and 2 lengths of 43″ for the top and bottom. Sew the border #1 side strips to the quilt and trim any extra length. Add the border top and bottom strips in the same way.
Sew the border #2 strips together and cut 2 lengths of 55″ for the sides and 2 lengths of 50″ for the top and bottom. Add border #2 in the same way as border #1.
Today’s featured fabric sponsor is Red Rooster Fabrics.
If you’d like to use these Red Rooster fabrics, they are in stores now. Here is how we named them:
fabric #1 5/8 yard medium blue print
fabric #2 5/8 yard brown print 1
fabric #3 5/8 yard red tone on tone
fabric #4 1/2 yard light blue print
fabric #5 5/8 yard peach tone on tone

fabric #7 1 yard brown print 2
fabric #8 5/8 yard orange tone on tone
And now to the giveaway! Red Rooster has provided three fat quarter bundles for lucky readers. We have batting and thread for some of the winners, too. Because Red Rooster is a fun name for a fabric company, we’re going to ask you to make up a name for a pretend fabric company. Leave a comment here by midnight Thursday, Sept. 15 with the name of your imaginary fabric company and we’ll randomly pick three winners.
