This past weekend was super busy. I painted (one coat) my workroom from a dark red to white, and finally finished another step in my crazy quilt. If you don’t remember, I’ve been sewing a shortcut quilt, where you first quilt the top, bottom and batting together into single blocks. It’s a method invented, I believe, by Marguerita McManus.
I broke down and bought a 16” square on Amazon, since I knew it would be much easier to cut with a square the size of the finished block.
Here’s what some look like. Next step is to attached the blocks with vertical sashing, then horizontal. The last step is to wrap the whole quilt with binding. See the pink post-it? It’s a marker. Before I trimmed the blocks, I laid them out to make my final design.
And this it what it looks like. I hope to have the quilt completed for my bed by wintertime.
