After shipping off a bunch of orphan blocks and making progress cutting up and stitching up my scraps, I feel like I'm on a roll! I'm loving the way the Modified Rail Fence is looking (I need a name, maybe Barbed Wire Fence?)
And the making the little 4-patches in a square is eating through the 2" squares that I am cutting from my scraps.
And while clearing out some orphan blocks, I came across the extra border blocks I had from when I did Sew Many Strips. I loved that border, and I've been cutting 1.5" strips, so I thought, "hey, maybe I can use this as a border for one of my current projects..." I auditioned it with my 4-patches in a square, and I like it!
I mailed off the completed X-Pop quilt to the baby who was born just about a month ago. Simple, straight-line quilting and a batik backing. I'm sorry to see this one go...but I think I say that about all the baby quilts I make. I hope the recipient family likes it and uses it.
There are two more babies on the way this summer - what to make next??? Maybe something like these bright, fun, bear paw blocks I made for my April Bee Blocks?
