So, the quilt isn’t technically finished. I still have to piece together the back. And then sandwich a piece of batting in between the top and the back. And then baste it. And then quilt it. And then bind it. hmm. I still have a ways to go. No matter. I have the top together and I’m damn happy about it.
So, the 2013 Sugar Block Club has transitioned to the 2014 Sugar Block Club – which, yes, I joined again. I really love what Amy does with these traditional-ish blocks. I think they’re great. But back to my quilt top! I’ve steadily worked on this all of last year, and I’m really excited about it.
To put all the blocks together, I totally stole the layout from a quilt made by Faith Jones, featured in her (and two other quilty peeps’) book Vintage Quilt Revival. I added a thick turqouise border, then a skinny white border followed by a skinny navy border to frame the blocks. I have some ideas, and some leftover half-filler blocks, for the quilt back. I just need some time – ok, lets be real here, more energy – to get it pieced together so I can finish this one.
Stay tuned, friends. I hope to have a finished quilt to show you soon.
