with this result:
Somehow I managed to make more patches than I needed, and to cut more triangle-in-a-square pieces, so at present I'm making a panel to use in the backing in an effort to shift some of the pieces already cut. I know if I put them away "in a safe place" I won't be able to find them when I need them, or, even worse, I'll forget I ever had them!
|left-over pieces getting ready to become a panel the length of the quilt back.|
I'll use a solid fabric between these blocks and at the side so I can make the backing from one and a half times the height of the quilt, instead of having to buy twice the height and have a lot left over (this measures 69" square).
I hope I did the maths right!!
This is what I was looking at on Saturday, but then decided the large chevrons would be too wide for the space, or too cramped to be effective.
Furthermore I like Friendship Stars; I'll use one of them to make the label.
I'm linking to Bonnie Hunter's blog, Quiltville for the final link up of the En Provence Mystery. Why don't you hit the buttons below and see what other scrappy and mystery quilters have produced?
