Not much of progress in the studio this week on the WIP’s BUT I did start a couple more. I know, I should finish one before starting another one but when you are stuck and unsure what to do it is better to work on something else.
The blocks are sewn together into rows but I haven’t figured out what to do for borders. Do I add smaller four patch blocks on point using the colors? Do I do an insert strip piece? Decisions..decisions.
The quilt center is done and looks great – very patriotic but I still need to figure out size of inner border. The pieced outer borders (triangles) are done so now I need to decide on the size of the inner border so that all of the pieces fit together.
Since I can’t figure out borders for the other quilts I decided to pull together some fabrics. Aren’t they great? Love the colors. I have made a bunch of block in a block units and trying to figure out layout.
Here is a sample of the recycled shirts I will be using for my 2015 Leaders & Enders quilt. Actually, I have 35 shirts (so far) ranging from light to dark in blue, green and brown. If you haven’t heard about ‘Leaders and Enders’ check out my previous post.
