A border print refers to a type of fabric that is designed for use in borders. Instead of an all-over print, this fabric has rows that can be cut apart for borders. Sometimes the rows are all the same and other times they vary as seen in the yellow quilt back and blue quilt back (last 2 photos).
Border prints look best when they are mitered in the corners. The border print on the yellow and blue quilt has not been mitered. In the scalloped quilt below, the border print’s pattern has a thin strip next to a larger floral pattern. This thin strip hugs the corners of the quilt.
