Jackie's BOMs (Canton Village Quilt Works). I tend to like BIG quilts, so Jackie's 13 Blocks became 26 --- I tend to like lots of piecing, so I made simple filler blocks from the left over fabric (I used a layer cake from Moda Collection, Basic Grey). I promise, there is nothing left from the layer cake except tiny TINY pieces. Thank goodness I bought matching fabric for an inner border (or sashing) and an outside border/binding.
Speaking of BIG quilts, I have always liked to make mine big. Even my baby quilts are larger than normal -- they have to be practical -- babies grow! Right? I giggled when Bonnie Hunter mentioned she liked them big in her live Quilt Cam the other night. I am tall, so I like them to cover my feet and sometimes my head when it is really cold. I also want to know that my family will pull out the practical quilts over and over to use them.
I am so excited that I have something to share on the Monday Design Wall -- so I am heading over to Judy's at Patchwork Times to share. Then I am heading for the recliner to start the binding handwork on my Orca Bay (yep, it is done, done, done).
