Well I am well on the way to finishing this quilt. The blocks were made by non-quilters and were varied in subject, fabric and size - all close to 12 x 12".
After arranging them and adding sashing to show up each block and help square them up, I joined them in rows of 3 - making 4 rows. I have FMQ around (giving me lots of practice) and inside each block and have shadow quilted around the sashing of half of the blocks.
I will join the rows using the process of quilt as you go and then the binding of strips of bright colours left over from the sashing. The back is like a shadow play of each block. I wonder what Sogni d'oro means?
