How to avoid lots of unpicking!

 As I'd made good progress with making up this quilt top I had the bright idea to add a 'fillet' of yellow to brighten it up and add a couple of borders. So the idea was there - but how to do it wasn't - hence lots of unpicking.  I thought I'd share how I worked it out so you could avoid the unpicking
So cut a 1 inch strip, iron in half and baste along the outer edge of the quilt. I basted along the edge so they be picked out easily - there is still a bit of unpicking.
 Then stitch on the next border. 

Then press out and remove the basting.
YAY.
How else can you spend a damp Bank Holiday weekend.
Hope you're all enjoying sewing too.
Best wishes
