I’ve been working on my blocks made from the Dear Betty FQ bundle that Daughter #1 got me for Christmas last year. I love these fabrics! Yes, I was working on these last week as well. But I have more done now!
I got all the red/yellow/blue fabrics sewn into blocks and then stopped. This is what the rest of the fabrics look like.
I love them, and I thought I liked them all together when they were in the bundle.
But not so much with my red and blue corner triangles.
So I decided to do what our quilting ancestors would do. I paired up my leftovers and pieced scraps together to get enough pieces for the rest of the blocks I needed.
I will have 16 blocks when I am done and each block finishes at 18 inches. Now to decide if I want to add sashing and corner stones, or maybe just a wide enough border to get this to work on a queen size bed.
I have nine blocks cut out of the fabrics I have decided not to use, these will make a nice lap size quilt so nothing goes to waste here!
