After a one hour walk this morning, I came home and got to work in the sewing room. Pat and I are working together to put the Navy and White blocks together for the Elgin Piecemakers' September Comfort quilt. 19 blocks were handed in at our September meeting so I started my day by making one more block so I could do a 4X5 block layout for this quilt. I found the pattern for this block in one of my 100 blocks magazines.
Next, I laid out all of the blocks on the floor in the hall outside my sewing room. I ransacked the fabric storage area, looking for possible sashing and cornerstone fabrics. I had purchased this chevron fabric as backing for this quilt but it kept screaming at me to be used for the sashing, so that is what I did. I found the red fabric for the cornerstones in my stash.
I sewed almost all afternoon and by the time it was time to make supper, the quilt top was done except for the borders.
By the time I had cut into the chevron fabric for the sashing and borders, I knew there would not be enough to make the back of the quilt. I ended up using some more of the red to make the backing big enough for the long arm quilter to do her magic.
Over the past couple of days, I have been making more Tula Pink 100 modern blocks as well...only 9 more to go now.
