I put the binding on my August UFO today.
This scrappy top was made from a block exchange with my mom and sisters in 2004-2005.
In July 2004, My mom, 2 younger sisters, niece, daughter and myself went to the Outdoor Quilt Show in Sisters, Oregon.
Up to that point we had several block exchanges. We were wanting to do another but was not sure what we wanted to do. We saw this quilt at the Quilt Show and all agreed we wanted to do something similar.
We got a marbled black for the block centers that we all used. They were cut 2 1/2 inches square. Each block had to have 4 rounds of different fabrics any width. The raw block needed to measure 8 1/2 inches.
I put my top together about 3 to 4 years ago at a retreat put on by Peggy's Sewing Center.
I also pieced the back at this retreat. I had planned to use black cornerstones. I had all of the sashing and cornerstones put together. When I put them into the top I did not like it at all. since I already had all of the sashing and cornerstones put together I decided to put them on the back. I also had 4 extra blocks that I put on the back.
