These embroidery patterns of borders are open to interpretation. Borders can also be edgings (as edgings can be borders as well) but we’re calling a border a design that doesn’t necessarily repeat like most edgings do. Pillowcases fall into this category as do floral sprays and yes, they can repeat if you want them to!
Note: I have hundreds of borders, edgings and corners so check back over the coming months. Yes, there will be a wide edging group and there will be designs in cutwork , also known as broderie anglaise.
