In my ongoing effort to clean up all the works in progress I finished the Bella Suede top.
I started with 30 fat quarters.
I wanted to use all of them so I worked out a pattern that would work will many colors and have very little waste in the cutting.
Each one is different
Teddy had to try them out
I made 20 blocks, These are large blocks, 17 inches.
Here are the 20 blocks
The top at this point would be 68″ x 85″ and I prefer a wider quilt, but I planned for that. I have pieces leftover from the blocks to add a 4 in border on the left and right to make it 76″ x 85″.
Teddy seems to be saying “I don’t think you need the border”.
But I talked him into it.
I have batting and backing ordered and I have enough of the fabric left for the binding
Simple hand quilting will finish it off nicely.
I still promise to show you all my works in progress before the new year….. when I see them all together I might be scared ;).
