Time for Piecing

   I enjoyed a visit with granddaughters over Halloween but also found some time for piecing. 
The Scrappy Duo (pattern by Fons & Porter) top1 is pieced.  Check this post for more info on the pattern.  I don't plan to add a border.  It is already about 54" by 72".

The second party DUO HST top is together.  This one I want to add a border to it to make it larger.  It is currently 38” by 59” with 126 units.  Any border suggestions? 

I also enjoyed time free-piecing mostly green scraps into green “made-fabric”. I have a plan for it.  

 I tried working with scissors and some ruler-free rotary cutting to trim.  This was practice as I look forward to trying some of Sherri Lynn’s improvisational scores from her book The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters.

Hope you find time to sew and quilt. 


  1. Love them both. The Duo HST is wonderful.....borders-----maybe a narrow white strip, then a wider band of all the colorful scraps strung together. that is if you have any :)

    1. Normally there would not be any scraps of those fabrics because you start with a pack of 10" squares (Layer Cake). Since I cut my own, I MIGHT be able to find a few scraps or at least similar.
