What do get when you have left over scrappy nine patches, Judy Laquidara’s book Weekend Quilts, and an over flowing 1.5 inch scrap bucket? THIS!
It isn’t done yet. I still need three more borders. If you have ever made a quilt designed by Judy, you know you’re going to be on “border patrol” (adding border after border) for some time. Yesterday I added three border and this week hopefully, I will get to the last three.
Here is a photo from Judy’s book of the original quilt. If you want to see a close up of how I used a dark in the center of the block, check out this link.
I have all the nine patches for the next border sewn….just not sewn together.
You can see I added corner stones in the sashing. Since I wanted to use up as much scrap as I could, it just made sense. I can finally say that my 1.5 inch scrap bucket is under control. Between the Crab Apple quilt and this quilt, the bucket is finally contained!
Hubby who doesn’t comment very much about my quilts beyond saying a quick, “Cool” , went so far to say “Wow”. I don’t think he has even said that….so it must be pretty good.
Now if my quilt machine gets back from the repair shop, I just might get a finished quilt.
