This is my week with 2 days of comfort quilt sew days – one for guild and one with church group.
Knowing that today would be guild comfort quilt sew day, yesterday I started gathering the pieces to sew at the meeting. Then I decided to put it together so today I took the top for batting and backing to be cut at the meeting.
I really like this quilt pattern. This is the second time I have made this design. It is fast and a good size. It finishes at 48” by 54” with a 3” border. I pulled 3 ½” squares and strips from my stash. You do have to be careful to piece 2 A blocks and 2 B blocks.
Tomorrow is sew day for my church quilt group. I have 2 tops ready for backing and batting so they can be sandwiched.
The first is another great big block pattern of 18” blocks using a large print fabric. You can see more about the pattern by watching the video from Nancy Zieman and “Sewing with Nancy” at http://wpt.org/SewingWithNancy/Video/sew-big-quilt-blocks-part-2
With only 12 blocks the quilt will finish at 54” by 72”. A border would make it larger.
Here is my second top ready to be sandwiched. When I trimmed the blocks for a Stack and Slice quilt, I saved the scraps and used them along with a few other scraps to improvisationally piece blocks.
