Piecing went quite quickly, and I added a white inner border,
but then spent a ridiculous amount of time auditioning outer border fabrics.
No one fabric seemed right to me, and then it hit me - a pieced border! I have all those precut scraps, so I pulled out the 3.5" bin and set about piecing a border. I love it! The chevrons remind me of Charlie Brown, so that's what I'm calling this one, the Charlie Brown Quilt. It measures 34" x 45".
While working on the Charlie Brown Quilt, I pulled out more orphan blocks and set about sewing them together as my Leader & Enders project. One of my goals this year was to make an orphan block quilt to replace the one I made years ago and used to keep in the car for road trips and sleepovers and visits to the drive-in theater. Somehow, that quilt disappeared and I miss it, so today I started on its replacement. What fun to sew orphans and scraps into chunks! I've made 8 so far, all somewhere between 9.5" and 16.5" square. This will be one riot of a quilt!
|My favorite. These dresden plate blades are left over from a quilt I made for my sister nearly a decade ago!|
|I really like this chunk, too!|
