Quilt #2 Color Block

While I was  waiting for Alice to call me on my Quilt #1 to be quilted and bound, I start on #2.  I start to cutting, then piece together.  I'm still using my old stand by Kenmore machine, it is great for the piecing.

It goes so quick, I finish the top in a day. 

Alice calls me just after Christmas and had a few questions for the quilting.  She ran into an issue because my initial cutting of strips was a bit off in one section.  And we also didn't decide what to use for the binding.  I decided to pay her a visit and also to take some leftover fabric from the top for the binding.

We, I mean she, came with a great solution for my miscutting.  Just make the border a bit thinner.

Alice planned to get work on the quilting and binding that evening.  Did I mention that she hand binds.  It was beautiful on the first quilt, so I had not worries on this one.

She calls and I head over to pick up my second quilt.  This one is for me.  Here it is:

I love it.  Bright colors and white sashing I think is my favorite.  Love the green with white dot for the binding.  Alice at makes me very happy.  What do you think!

  1. I like that one even better! The thin border was a really good idea.
