Here's the mission - create a quilt out of existing blocks (supplied by the requester) and try to incorporate some other fabrics also provided by the requester. Quilt size - about a twin size. Mission ACCEPTED :).
The blocks given were roughly 8"x8" - 35 of them. There were some very cool prints and a few solids. Most looks like there were remnants or up-cycled fabrics. The blocks were all roughly hand-sewn together and the squares look like they were all free-cut without rulers. So they all needed to be carefully squared off.
Some needed a lot of squaring off...but no worries, they all ended up looking mighty nice at the end.
After squaring them off, they were all just under 8". I was careful not to cut off the hand sewing.
Started to piece the quilt top together, adding a fresh solid border sash to join all the blocks together. Press and voila - looking nice :)
The quilt top is almost complete - just need to add the border to make it a full twin size quilt and we are off to start the quilt bottom.
Hopefully there will be more progress to share again soon. Katie - Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to create this beautiful quilt for you and trusting me with all the precious blocks from your grandma.
