For my project, I decided to make these blocks entirely with batik fabrics and I also accidentally changed the block size. I misunderstood a diagram and I hadn't read all the words when I transcribed this design into Electric Quilt. It turned out fine though since I was using scraps and not a jelly roll (and Electric Quilt prints-out templates).
When I pulled out my RSC project bin I found I had finished twelve blocks throughout the year.
My original layout called for a total of sixteen blocks, but as I dug through my batik scraps again, I came up with lots more fabrics and I decided to add another row of four blocks.
I spent most of Saturday cutting out and making the additional eight blocks. Then, on Sunday, I spent nearly the full day making the sashing units and then assembling everything together.
While I was digging through my boxes of unironed fabric I ran across this amazing rainbow batik. It's perfect! I think it will make a great border fabric, and I think there might be just enough for the backing too. I really hope so.
Since I doubt I'll do another blog post tomorrow (I've been way too busy sewing to write updates), I may as well add a list for this week:
- Finish the borders on the Flowers for Nana Girl lap quilt
- Make the backing and quilt it, too.
- Finish the Arlington Square quilt project too?
