Peeps and borders

I love peeps.... Do you use them bordering quilts...... 
I cut 1 in strips........ Fold in 1/2 and iron.  
When sewing on the quilt I only sew with 1/8 in seams.  When you sew the next border on it gets the full 1/4 in sewn in as it is exactly over the top on the peep.
Doesn't it look great.......gives it a real pop....... 
So last night I definitely got my 10 mins in as I made two backings - taught my apprentice how to make them and she joined one length and i put these borders almost on....? 
 This morning I  attached the last two wide border sides and joined two rows of my nine patch together........ 
Catch you later......

  13. I've never heard them called peeps, but what a great name! And it might be just what I need for a very ugly quilt I'm finishing. Thanks for the idea!!

  15. I really like the pop of colour that a peeper border gives, excellent for giving that extra "something" to a quilt that is a bit ho-hum.
