Quilt #2 in series (of maybe just 2)
Center without borders yet.
I like the squares with the narrow stripes.
Good use of my left over scraps!
Yesterday I went to the quilt shop to "show off" my completed tops. My teachers eyes nearly popped out of her head she was so surprised. Up until then I had been complaining that I couldn't bring the pieces together and now I had...finally. She liked them. The tiny narrow stripes got rave reviews too. I call them my "Gees Bend/like Squares". I got fabric for backing for both on sale for $4 a yard! What a deal. And more border fabric for the second quilt. I need to wash it and then I'll be busy sewing again. The second quilt is very green and will have a green leaf backing. The first quilt is predominately rose with greens and blues and I got fabric with all those colors in very small squares that look like brush paint strokes.
I have enough squares left over for a six rows by six rows of 6" squares. Am thinking of cutting them up like the narrow striped squares and making something with that. A small wall hanging maybe or a pillow top? Ideas churning.
I had to come home and take out two squares one on each quilt. The #1 had a stripe that made a "star" look like something else and needed to be turned around. I did that. The second had a square that was too big and made puckers and that came out too and was trimmed down to be returned for a smoother look. That's why we need teachers. They point out the flaws and people like me who might have just left it didn't and got a nicer outcome.
