Framed Blocks

 A great way to add interest to a quilt block or to make the quilt block larger is to add a frame.  You could also call it a border for your block.

How To Frame a Block

Framing a block is simple.
  1. Cut the side frame pieces the same size as the block.
  2. Add the side pieces and press towards the frame.
  3. Measure the width of the block and cut the top and bottom pieces to this length.
  4. Add the top and bottom pieces and press towards the frame.



Framing blocks like this is great for mindless chain piecing!

Happy Quilting!
