Nice work Lois,these are really cheerful blocks.Love the spotted corner stones
I have to say that while happy with how my blocks looked- when I went to square up each one and sew each individual little square into the bigger block- some were really not square- that's what I get for doing things in a hurry! LOL! Anyway-I carried on and now have them pinned together in their rows but I did have to go out and buy some sashing as I didn't have enough and will have to get a border fabric also along with a backing ( so much for using stash LOL!)
Well, now I know where all the active people have been lurking….LOL. I'm taking my project with me to a 5-day quilting retreat starting Thursday. Hopefully I'll be posting finished blocks, or even a finished top! :-D
Good luck and have fun.
What I would do for a 5 day quilting retreat..... Have fun and can't wait to see your projects.
Well- I have the center part finished of my boxy stars but can't get it to paste onto this discussion- so if you want to see it- check out my pictures on my page!
