Center Almost Sewn

30 Jul
Three more seams to go!

Three more seams to go!

After I get those three last seams sewn, the top will be 64″ x 64″.  That’s a little small for my taste, so I’ll add a skinny white border then either a red or blue border – depending on what fabric I have in my stash.

I got to thinking…. This was such an easy leader-ender quilt because of all the 2.5″ pieces that were sewn together.  What if I made another one scrappy – everything but the kitchen sink kind of scrappy?  Light squares where the blue is; dark where the red is.  Consistent background around the stars?  No… Scrappy background I think.  Do I have enough 2.5″ strips and squares?

I think I have enough!  🙂  Hmmmm…. maybe I’ll lay it out in EQ and see how it would look!

 

EDIT:  How’s this?

    This quilt is looking great. I think I’d like the scrappy version even better! I’m big on leaders and enders too. Sometimes you make the best quilts that way.

      I agree! The thought of doing it all out of 2.5″ squares is daunting. I think I’d fall back on consistent background for the center so I could cut 8″ finished squares for those like I did in this quilt.
