...after finishing those two I think it is still an odd proportion and really needs another row of four - each block is 12.5". I have enough fabric for the backings and I think enough for all the sashing strips I need - it is a QAYG string quilt sewn together with narrow strips on the front and a folded strip on the back that flips over and has the folded edge sewn down later - similar to binding. I will have to look at the yardage I have left next and decide. I am thinking about a border of the fireworks fabric on the left... still no decision there. This is a charity quilt that was never finished when I still ran the quilting group at my church. It will go to the county foster care group who will see that a foster care child will have a little something to call their own, even if the bed they sleep in is not technically theirs. I think the cute little baseball theme should fit right in for a sports loving boy. The black stripe fabric that runs down the center of each block is also the back of the quilt.
To see what everyone else was up to today, jump on over to Judy's Design Wall Monday post - those little thumbnail photos are always so enticing... little windows into other quilters projects and processes, successes and challenges. Have a great week.
