Finished this round tonight, and quilted the last [bottom] border after adding it. I wasn't sure I wanted to add on all four sides, so there was an "incubation" period while I watched a waited for direction. Finally with the change in colors and size, it seemed like the right thing to also add a bottom border in squares.
The top squares are printed on the fabric, so no complicated construction was required. I liked the idea of having one "regular" set of checkerboards that were NOT wonky to show that this was indeed intended to be a "squares" border.
The other three borders were pieced in a slightly wonky way.
So far the "quilt as you go" method is working well.
Family vacation without a sewing machine made for little quilting in the last 2.5 weeks. Now I'm back at work, and hope to finish a new baby quilt soon.
