These are blocks from several swaps from approximately 10 years ago. I was just learning about color values, about the importance of a consistent seam allowance, the fact that not all rulers are created equal! Most of the blocks in this quilt top are ones I received from fellow swappers, but there are also a few of my own. I want this wider, not sure how I’m going to accomplish that, but I’m thinking of all those HST pieces I have from other quilts. Maybe I can add a ‘sort of’ Sawtooth border on each side from those pieces and keep within the scrappy look. I know I won’t add a consistent color border to this, I don’t think I want it ‘framed’….. but never know
And the strip quilt done in the Jelly Roll Race style is done and ready to send off to Michelle for donation to the fire victims of the Colorado wildfires. I just did a sort of popcorn flower and ribbon meander on this - the prints are really too busy for much more elaborate quilting.
I did not attend Sew Fest this year, but I am still doing a little to feel like I am contributing. I finished quilting one Patriotic quilt and have to get the backing pieced to get another on the frame. I have four to quilt then I will bind them all once they’re quilted…. Guess I’d better get busy
