Got the blocks all together on Friday and then put the first border on just like the pattern directed. Then my brain saw a stack of scraps and took a left turn...
This is the border fabric that, according to the pattern, should be pieced with cornerstones. It's really pretty, but there are all those scraps!
So I had some leftover block parts that I decided to use as the cornerstones (would have stared this earlier, but wanted to get Dawna's eyes and creative brain over here for a look-see). Loved the scraps as part of the border on either side of the cornerstones, so that's my project for today.
Meanwhile, I was waiting for Dawna to come around after the shop closed and got all the red strips sewn together and then the wider white strips sewn on top so that I can get a head start on my next Cozy Quilts project, Long May She Wave. I love red, white, and blue quilts, don't you?
And here's the cover; I still need have to go to Bolts in the Bathtub and buy some blue fabric for the star.
Today I want to get that border on Buckeye Beauty and start piecing the back out of those leftover blocks and scraps. Then tomorrow I can buy the rest of the backing fabric as well as the blue fabric for the star.
Yay, fabric shopping!!!!
