I have had the idea of making a monopoly quilt for my dad for a looong time and have been collecting fabrics for the last couple of years. My dad has recently been diagnosed with a serious illness and it has made me feel (among others thing) like I should have pulled my socks up sooner and got started on it.
The main thing that has put me off all this time is how to do the black borders between the properties. Like this.
One of the suggestions I got from the old place (I don’t remember who it was, it was soooo long ago) was to use black piping. Which I like the idea of, but my main concern is if all that piping cord will make the quilt really stiff and not soft and squishy.
I know some commercial bedding sets use a line of piping on pillowcases and quilt covers, but has anyone used lots of piping on a quilt?
