I haven’t kept up with the monthly mini challenges over on the Small Quilt Talk Yahoo group over the last year of so. But I was in the mood for a mini recently, so I checked in to see what the current challenge was. This year, the challenges will all be based on quilts from Kathy Tracy’s latest book. I started with this pile of four patches.
They were set stripy style using sashing. You were supposed to use some sort of stripe here, but I went with what I had on hand. I also seemed to have forgotten the pattern, which called for only those two middle sashing strips. I got carried away and sashed everything!
I added some mismatched borders and quilted it on my Singer 301. Nearly all the fabrics in this little quilt came from the box of fabrics Ila sent me! Thanks again, Ila! I couldn’t have made this without you!
By the way, I enjoyed reading all of your comments yesterday about the bias edges on blocks. Val asked if having a straight of grain border helped if the blocks are on the bias. It does if the borders are carefully and accurately applied. However, it is much more difficult to apply the borders accurately if the blocks have bias edges.
Have a wonderful day!
