About the progress made on my red, black & cream quilt! I have more than half of the center sewn together, and now that I've got an assembly line system going, it is happening really fast! I only have 4 more rows to complete!
There are 3 borders around the center - first a row of black & cream half square triangles. Next, a border of 2-1/2 x 5 inch strips of red, then a second border of the red strips, offset so they don't line up. I am thinking I will cut more of my red stash and make the final border wider than the 2-1/2 inches. I always like to have extra border so I can square the quilt up after the longarm quilter does her thing.
I didn't add extra fabric to the border of the baby quilt I just finished because I just did not want to buy any more fabric, and I regret that I didn't do it. So I'll go back to my comfort zone and make this one bigger. That means more cutting to do - good thing I like cutting!
I should have the center finished by the weekend, so look for a photo update soon!
