Doing Over the Do-Over Quilt
If you have been following along with this quilt, you know that the design for the quilt came from QuilterGeek--it isn't a pattern (yet), but the idea, a diagram, and a few instructions. I changed the size of the blocks and made a few changes in the colors. Then I cut out the whole quilt, salvaged the backing from the first one, made the binding, wound a bunch of bobbins, and was ready to go. The UPS guy brought the new fabric Tuesday evening, and by Wednesday evening I was sewing. I finished sewing the last of the blocks late Saturday afternoon. What a good thing that the shortcut for quarter square triangles makes them quick and easy---and almost fool proof! The blocks are up on my design wall, and I'll start assembling them tomorrow. Graduation, however, is Friday, May 4, so I'm not going to make my deadline....but a good quilt is worth waiting for. :)
And just look at all the lovely scraps (and lots of leftovers
in my fabric closet)
.....the possibilities are endless!
