April Showers Mystery Quilt: Week 4 Borders and Corners

Well, 4th and final week of the April Showers Mystery Quilt is here, Kari Schell and I will conclude this projects collaboration of by showing you how to design and piece the final part of the April Shower Mystery Quilt.

If you have missed any of my blog posts on how to piece, you can catch up with the series here:

Today, we will be finishing by adding some borders and corners to our assembled quilt top.

Over the past several weeks, we have been making some tricky blocks with our Studio 180 Design, Corner Beam® Tool.  With all the practice we have been doing with the tool you will find this week’s Corner Beams, that is used in the border corners, really easy. 

The borders consist of making green and red strip sets and trimmed to size. 

Be sure to check out how Kari designs the blocks in EQ8, Here. If you would like to learn how to develop these blocks in EQ8, visit her posts here, Week 1Week 2, and Week 3

Here is some sample of what others have made so far in this challenge.

Make sure you watch Week 4's video tutorial and download the pattern Here. The downloads will be available until May 15th!  After that, you will be able to purchase the patterns on my website.

  1. I wanted to say "Thank You", to you and Kari, for bring this pattern, EQ instruction, and how-to videos to life for us. I've had a great time following this and learning new ways to use Deb Tucker's rulers and EQ software in a new pattern. This is such a neat (and quick!) pattern to welcome spring with. We even had some crocuses bloom this week, only a month or two late. Lol. I hope you two do more collaborations together. I've really enjoyed this. Thank you again!
