Last week I finally got started on putting together the blocks I had received from group 2 of the We Bee Learning bee back in January! This was only the 3rd quilt top that I had assembled and I think I let the fear of not doing it right get a hold of me. Therefore, I just let all my blocks sit there and weep unfinished for quite a few months. Nonetheless, I figured I better get that top together before everyone else in the group got done before me!
It took me awhile to decide on a final layout. I had enough blocks with white borders and enough with solid borders to kind of come up with a little pattern. I then took the blocks to the craft room and began to sew.
About 6 blocks in I realized I forgot to square up my blocks, but luckily I had some pretty talented ladies making blocks for me and they were all coming together very nicely. Within 30mins I had everything sewn together and I was amazed at how quickly it all came together and at how AMAZING it looked! Now I have a few mismatched seams, but for my 3rd ever quilt top I don’t really care. I am just uber happy that it is
I am going to add a skinny solid border and then a fat white border. Any thoughts?
Now I have to get started on the quilt top from Group 1. I have to redo one block that didn't quite come out right and then I can get started on putting it together. I am going to add sashing in this one, but I must say I am not entirely sure how to do that. I took a look online and found a few options including one that I think will work the best for me. However, I am now thinking of adding corner stones maybe in a bright blue to go with my grey sashing......What do you think??
