The scraps continue to fly in my sewing room. I’ve finished all the blocks plus a few more to make it bigger in my mystery quilt. As mentioned I didn’t want to just slap a border on it as was suggested in the pattern.
I used these units to go around the edge of my quilt. I like the way they finish the pattern on the 16 patches and create diamonds where the pattern was beginning to repeat. I think it gives it a more finished feel.
I think it gives it a more finished feel. I’m about half way so I’m hoping today to finish this up and hopefully have a top soon.
Several people have commented on my background, both in class and here on my blog. It is Bella Solid 9900-100. It is one of my favorite solids to use as a background. I also like the buttery yellow of 9900-148 and any gray. Gray is a wonderful background in my opinion. Now is a great time to stock up as the Fat Quarter shop has them all 20% off. Always good to stock up when there is a sale. I know I will and wanted to share the news in case you would like to.
