I am still working on the graduation quilt. I actually am almost ready to figure out some border fabric. I have one more panel to do…so far, I am loving it!
The pattern is Bargello in Plaid (made from recycled shirts). You can find the pattern in Bonnie Hunter’s book, Scraps & Shirttails: Reuse, Re-pupose, Recycle! The Art of “Quilting Green”. It’s really easy to make…Don’t worry a drop about organizing those blocks. The design of the pattern does it all for you.
While I was sewing that, I’ve been sewing my Granny Square blocks as leaders and enders. They are coming along GREAT! In fact, 25 blocks and done and sewn together. It’s time to make some border decisions on this one…want to help?
If you are looking for the Granny Square block pattern, you can find it here. Please note that my blocks were not made with 2.5″ squares as the pattern calls for. I make mine with 2″ squares. I trimmed my blocks down to 7″ square. I made 25 blocks and put them in a 5 x 5 setting with no sashing. I am cutting 1.5″ strips for the inner border and outer will be 3″…It will be real close to 40″ square when it is finished…Perfect for a baby.
