|First stage of top completion - the white sashing is from a jelly roll, the strips of fabric in the blocks were all cut from larger pieces, I think it would be easier next time to use a couple of jelly rolls so all the strips are the same width.|
|My probable borders: red, blue, navy/white stripe binding|
I started following a pattern I found on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5Ixvjje310 which looked easy. Of course, being a newbie, I didn't realise how important 1/4 inch seams would be....consequently, my seams are all over the place in this quilt! However, I think it's so far turned out okay. I used a jelly roll of plain white sashing, my first time, to break up the busy-ness of the quilt.
Next step will be to sew on some borders, get it quilted and then finish with the binding. So, this is another to-be-continued post, hopefully it won't take another three years to finish!
