I have two cane baskets where I keep left over blocks and fabrics and other fabrics I've pulled out of my stash intending to make projects with them. It's also where I tend to 'dump' things when doing a quick tidy up. I am not a tidy sewer. Well on Sunday I was rummaging through these baskets and came across the left over blocks from the challenge quilt.
I wanted to make a cheery quilt for a friend's birthday today and these blocks seemed just right.
I have three small boards that I use for my displays that also double as mini design walls. Jan's Idea. They are simply 3 fabric bolts (empty of course) butted and taped together, covered with batting, then homespun. They are great for small quilts or block layouts and can be easily moved around and placed next to the sewing machine.
All finished, including a label, and waiting to be wrapped. I think it measures 23 inches, to be honest I just added the borders, size was important, finishing was! And it needed to be cheery and pretty and I think I've succeeded there.
