To make the Braided Quilt Border Pattern:

Cut strips from light and dark fabrics. Stitch strip 1 to the end of strip 2, creating a 90-degree angle. Stitch strip 3 to strip 2 and its end to strip 1. Stitch 4 to 1 and its end to 3. Continue adding strips to needed lengths. Stitch triangles made with strips to corners. So all corners are symmetrical, stitch a square in middle of sides. Baste along both edges of border before sewing to quilt top and binding.
