I love my little finish today! This was the April Challenge for the Small Quilt Talk Yahoo group that I am part of (SQT).
The HSTs and 4 patches finish at 2 inches. I marked the quilting lines with this point turner.
I started by quilting the diagonal lines but I shouldn’t have. Even though I was using my walking foot, starting with the diagonals began to pull it out of square.
So I went back and did all the vertical lines before I finished the diagonals. I didn’t mark the vertical lines, just eyeballed it. As Angela Walters says, close enough is good enough! And here is the finished quilt.
See that border fabric? On its own, it is not the most exciting print in the world. But it really makes the scraps sing. It is what I think of as a “nothing” print because it isn’t really identifiable, you just know it isn’t a solid. These prints are some of the most useful you can buy.
They are the “servants” of the fabric world. You know how there are people with the heart to serve others. They tend to fade into the background. Their job is often to make others look good. But nothing would look good or happen without them. That is what a nothing print does. If you see them, buy them!
And here is the back.
