The border is machine sewn as shown here.
Folded and put in my quilting bag, ready to be taken with me tomorrow to our Monday's meeting, where I will sew the border by hand as shown here.
I add this pictures for the ones interested in the knot method I used for tying this quilt.
I found it in a French book, but I suppose you can find it in English on the web. Although it is understandable just by looking at the pictures.
It is called the Pompom Stitch because, once the quilt washed, it will look like a pompom.
