Working At It

Finished quilts can be really glamorous.  Chain piecing the zillions of little bits to make the top really isn't.  My reward for all this hard work?  I will get to cut off all those corners (they've been double seamed already), press them, square them, and use them in a border.  Yep, 800 of them.


  1. Oh my. Hey, are those the ginghams I brought over a long time ago?....can't wait to see what you make with them.

  2. 800! oh my word! I would have to do those in stages as leaders and enders or I'd never have finished them.
    I hope to pull the quilt outta the box today and get the binding done and get a photo posted of it soon.
    Thanks for quilting it for me!

  3. I like to double seam mine too and then I just drop them in this deep drawer I have. Someday I want to make a pinwheel quilt out of them - all different sizes of blocks.
