Step 8. Border 2 - Take the strip set off-cuts and cross cut into 3 1/2" strips. Crosscut 1 x 3 1/2" Fabric S strip and the excess Fabric S strip from Border 1 into into 3 1/2" squares. For each side border start with a 3 1/2" Fabric S square and sew together 6 x 3 1/2" strip set off-cuts using a 3 1/2" Fabric S squares between each. Sew 1 x 3 1/2" coloured square to one end of the border strips. Press seams in one direction. Sew one strip to each side of the quilt. Press seams towards Border 1. Again starting with a 3 1/2" Fabric S square and sew together 5 x 3 1/2" strip set off-cuts using a 3 1/2" Fabric S squares between each.
