This is what I'm working on now. The blocks are sewed together into rows. Now I just need to sew the rows together. I am not putting a border on this just binding. I like the look of that sometimes. It reminds me of the older quilts. They often didn't use borders. My theory is that it was a lot of trouble to hand sew on the long borders. Maybe this was the reason, maybe not. Anyway, I like the look and that is what I'm doing on this one.
It was so much fun just sewing squares together! I had forgotten how mindless this kind of sewing is. This is the 2nd quilt I get out of two packages of fatquarters. WOW! it is amazing how far a small amount of fabric can go. This will be donated to a charity our guild donates to called "Children in Need". The last batch of quilts were donated to the burn center at one of our hospitals.
Have a great day!
