Science Fair Friday Finish
Finally, a finished quilt top. This quilt is not hard. The blocks are large. There are only 12 of them. But it took me forever to get them done and put together.
It went from this...
I made the sashing strips 3 inches, instead of 2 1/2 inches. Same with the borders. I wanted the quilt wee bit bigger so it would fit on J's bed better. I discovered how much I hate cutting and sewing the long sashing and border strips onto a quilt. Probably why I don't make many quilts like this anymore.
But I do love the way it turned out. Now, on to basting and quilting. The goal is to have it done and ready to give to J when he comes for Thanksgiving!
