I have had a good, hot, long day sewing with friends. Actually it was with the Kilmore Quilters all day sit n sew. 10am-10pm..
I didn't know what to take with me to work on. I go into my workroom and have a look around. I grabbed a box with a long time UFO in it. There were parts of 3 projects using the same fabrics. All the fabric is in there. Enough for borders, backing and binding. All the blocks had been done. I just had to work out how to put it all together.
|How do I make a quilt with these|
There were crossroads to Jehrico blocks originally made when I was in the Sunbury group. Each block was made by a member in the group. As with any group project all the blocks turn out different sizes. Once trimmed square there was 1/2" difference btween them. I added purple borders to them to make them up to 12" blocks.
The smaller blocks were from an online SAL... I added corner triangles in the background fabric to the blocks to make them up to size.
|Blocks all measure 12" now|
and then there were the filler blocks. Hour glass and half square triangles.
I got them all to fit together and I am so happy with it.
|Blocks joined with the filler blocks|
Then I got the borders added.
|Ready for quilting|
On Monday I will get it basted ready for quilting..
This is also a project on my UFO resolutions list...
I got to it sooner than expected but I do have a special person in mind to give it too.
