Fill Border Pearls behind an appliqued swag border
This is my first set of Fill Border patterns, which have been so popular.
The samples show how they would look stitched above and below a running feather border, echoed once. (the feather pattern is not included in these patterns).
The Fill function will connect lines where they are interrupted by the echo and the border seam.

All of the straight, piano-key type border patterns above can be set up with butted borders, but if you prefer the look of a mitered corner, here are several corner patterns to coordinate with border patterns shown above.
Setting up a Fill Border with a Corner Pattern
1. Draw the boundary for your border.
2. Place the corner pattern and size it to the density you want. Pull UL resizing handle to extend the pattern off the quilt if you want it larger or less dense.
3. Use Circular Array to make 3 more corners. Position UR corner pattern to match UL. Remove or toggle the remaining patterns sewn to hold for later.
4. Place one border pattern on the CAD and size it to match the corner. Use that pattern size to place the required number of repeats to fill the border.
5. Corner patterns will not snap to border repeats. Align them, using the CAD grid to measure spacing and nudge them into place.
6. Set the Sew Order.
7. Use Fill Inside to crop off parts of the pattern not needed within the drawn boundary.

Note: Both of the Dew Drops Corner Patterns are drawn to be in scale with the Fill Border Dew Drops Large. Use the Fill function to crop off parts of the pattern that extend beyond the intended quilting space.
