Round one directions were given out on January 15th. This is through a group of quilters that I chat/hang out with/love! at Pat Sloan's Quilt Mashup.
We needed to use some scraps from the block and could set our block on point or add a plain border that could be big enough for embroidery and/or applique.
On point wasn't going to look right with this block!
I added a really wide border - 6.5 inches wide - not necessarily for some big applique but simply to grow this quilt. There will only be 6 rounds. Now, I could add both border options each round, but that might not happen. I also had quite a chunk of the green fabric so I decided to use it up now - I still have a little bit left.
Ideas are stewing - to add applique or not?
We'll see. I've had a few ideas pop in my head when I glance up at this on my design wall.
Report cards are calling my name! Gotta go do some more teacher stuff.
My reward will be a weekend where I can really focus on my quilting list.
