After laying out the blocks for my second swap quilt on the living room floor, I had to move them to the spare bedroom upstairs to make room for people to walk. (Some people just don’t understand that it’s a design floor, not a walkway!)
That led to more trips up and down stairs as I sewed the blocks into rows and returned each row to the layout so as to keep them in order. That’s where the exercise came in 😀
Finally I added borders, so here’s the finished top (twin size), ready to go to the quilter. (Are you reading this, Julia?)
This is the second quilt made from blocks I’ve swapped with friends when we couldn’t get together to quilt due to you-know-what.
What have you been up to lately?
Such a fun and creative way to get your daily steps in.
Hi, Velda! Good to hear from you 🙂
I love the thin border.
I love the layout of this quilt. You have given me an idea on how to layout one of the samplers in progress. “Someone” around here still does not understand how even though my sewing stuff has taken up two rooms, I still need to rope off the living room area as my design floor.
Perhaps “someone” should make you a design wall 😄
The offset rows seem to be your signature style – I like it! The slim blue border helps to unify the scrappyness of this quilt…
Thanks. With blocks from 4 different people it is indeed scrappy.
Ah, the benefits of sharing. Lovely quilt
Thank you 😊
What a wonderful quilt!
I love how you spaced the blocks with each long row off center to the next. I need to remember this technique. It looks great.
Thanks! Send me a picture when you do this and I’ll link to your blog about it 🙂
It is really true that when I’m quilting/making, I do a lot more up-and-down on the stairs than otherwise!
