After making 41 blocks, I've just about run out of selvages. I haven't yet gone through my stash to see what other ones I can cut so will keep this project ongoing for a while. Had to take pics on the floor because I have a big quilt on my design wall that I'll share another time.
This layout is different from the one I showed you last month but I think I like that one better. What do you think?
For this month's mini, I finally used the vintage 9-patch blocks that I purchased from Mary Koval many years ago in Lancaster.
They were all hand-pieced and close to 3"--if you know what I mean :) So I started squaring them up and this is what they look like.
The stripes are crooked on some . . .
. . . there are stains on others . . .
. . . but all are intact :)
The back. I tried Barb V's method for applying a single binding. She has a great tutorial here. I would definitely try it again!
This year I've decided to add an extra line on the label that tells a little more about the quilt.
Have a great week!
