and all they have in common is that they are all from my bag of scraps. Nearly all of what I create is, you know..*VBS* The first little quilt was made about a year ago. It has lain in a pile of UFO...the problem? I think the outer border is too wide. Betsy says it's not. I think it over powers the quilt. Shall I cut it narrower? Probably not a dolly quilt for children..just a little quilt from play time. I used to make a lot of those, but have gotten away from it until lately. I had forgotton how much fun it is to make little quilts..*S*
Second picture is of some piecing. It's an idea I am trying. I think almost every one has seen the directions for that curved piece border that was around 4 or 5
years ago?? Well I took a few of my 1.5" strips, and made a band. Then I cut one of the border curves, fit it the strip and sewed it down. What I'm thinking of doing is entending that curve piece to turn these two combined items into a square block vs. a 3 or 4" border. Or I could cut the string section longer and go square from that side. Time will tell.
It's a lovely 46 degree day already, here in WI...sunshine and lots of melting snow. I've errands to run today, a gift certificate to use by the 15th and of course I'd rather be sewing! Our nice weather is suppose to be gone after tomorrow, so I'd better run today.
