I just finished sewing the next border on the Mariner's Compass quilt. This border was made with hexagon flowers appliquéd in scrappy square in a square blocks. The quilt is a BOM from homesteadhearth.com. I do not have the fabric stash for a scrappy quilt like this and Homestead Hearth is sending the prettiest fabrics.
For this border they sent a huge variety of 6 inch squares and fat 16ths and it was up to me to fussy cut the hexagon flowers, and choose the centers and corners on the square in the square blocks and use them where I want in the border.
I like this type of BOM that leaves fabric placement up to me.
I also did a little fun sewing on a group quilt that will go in a charity auction later this year.
We started with gold kite shapes and then there is basically no wrong fabric you can add to these foundation strip pieced blocks.
When the triangles are put together you get four pointed stars surrounded by spiderwebs.
Roseville Album is getting closer and closer.
I have finished the last of the corner blocks
and now I am about to start the last long border.
The shapes on this border seem large so hopefully they will not take long to applique. That polka dot squirrel just makes me smile.
We have had a lot of rainy weather lately which has kept me indoors sewing and getting lots done on my different projects.
