I had a little more time than I thought to sew today so I was able to finish it. Tomorrow, I'd like buy the backing and binding (red) and sandwich it. Not sure if I will have time to begin machine quilting it or not. BTW, any suggestions how you would quilt it?
The top measures just over 28 inches and each subunit block is 3 1/2 inches square. The strips are approximately 1/4 inch wide (finished). I incorporated as many selvages from my stash of fabrics as I could. I also need to straighten the border edge. Do you think its a little wide? I'm thinking of trimming it down a half inch. What do you think?
Now why did an e-mail from Gerry inspire me to make this quilt? Gerry's been telling me how she's not going to save those 1 inch strips anymore because that's how her "saving problem" began!
Well!!! That was all I needed to hear and so I set about cutting 3/4 inch strips. One inch strips, those would have been too easy. Me, have a saving problem?!? Ha, I can still walk through my house so I must be OK. Furthermore, I can still see the carpet! Oh yeah, Gerry made me do it.
Rats, just read an e-mail from Gerry and she guessed what it is. I think I felt too sorry for her and gave her too many hints! Next time I won't be so easy on her.
Its been fun but like I wrote earlier, stop me before I ever do something like this again! Oops, I have got to go. Thanks for your patience and for humoring me!
