Picket Fence Border for the Dawn to Dusk Quilt

I uploaded a video to YouTube showing how to make the Picket Fence pieced border I used on my Dawn to Dusk quilt.  The quilt is in my More Nickel Quilts book as well as The Big Book of Nickel Quilts.

Here is the link to the video  https://youtu.be/_zqo9TFtezM

This fun and unusual pieced border is really very easy to make!

Then sewing them together into the border blocks.

So simple and yet it can add so much to a quilt!

This Picket Fence border is just one of the 260 pieced borders that are in my Nickel Quilts & Borders book.

Rock Valley Quilters and the Pieced Borders Workshop

It’s my Pieced Borders workshop for the Rock Valley Quilters in Janesville, Wisconsin.  This group has just completed the warm-up units, Half Square Triangles and Four Patches, and are ready to move on to more great units that can all be made from 5″ squares of fabrics!

Workshop participants

Before they get started on the next unit I bring everyone up to the demo table and walk them through the construction process.  In this staged photo (I’m normally caught with a really unattractive expression on my face while I am talking) I’m pointing out many fun borders they can turn their Hourglass units into!

Demo Table

How I love pot luck lunches!  A shortage of counter space and an abundance of food required transforming this ironing board into a dessert table.

Overflow of goodies

I am looking forward to seeing some fun Pieced Nickel Borders from this group in the future!
