Sometimes when I see something in my head, it doesn't always turn out as cute in real life.
This time, it turned out WAY cuter :)
To start out, I gathered all of my pink and green selvages. I had a bunch in my scrap bag and I also cut all of the selvages from the fabric for the Medallion quilt.
In order to keep myself in a straight line, I decided to use a foundation piecing method.
I cut my copy paper in half, 8.5" by 5.5".
When I would come to the end of a strip of paper, I just butted the next one up, end to end.
This is the back side. It's hard to see, but the stitching lines are visible if you squint ;) ..or don't have 40+ year old eyes ;)
This is a picture with some of the paper ripped off.
As the pieced strip became too long, I would tear off the paper, press it, and cut off 5" sections, and then trim to 5" square.
Here are my blocks waiting for sewing into rows.
I had a REALLY hard time deciding on what to do for the corner blocks.
Konda suggested a block in a block block ;)
I went for it. To make sure that I ended up with the exactly right sized block, with the perfect block inside, I foundation pieced it.
I am sure loving this quilt.
I am not sure what border is next...
Flying geese or Snow White?
