Design Wall Monday - Feb 25
I bought the green & pink fabrics last year in Texas, so I'm really happy to have a project for them. And, I have apparently once again run close to the edge on my fabric. I redesigned the borders based on the amount of green I have left, because when I laid the whole quilt out in Electric Quilt, I didn't have enough fabric in my stash for what I had originally planned. When the quilt is done, I'll have less than 4" of the green in my stash. That's actually good news, because this really isn't my style of fabric anyway.
There is a lot of waste with this method, however. I supposed without that, I'd have had more of the green left over.
I expect to get this quilt off the wall by the end of the week, and hopefully have the borders on it by the end of next weekend. The ruler really did make this go quickly, and easily. Although, when planning partial blocks for the pieced border, it is important to sketch out the plan, so you don't short-change yourself. There are a few "extra" seams in some of the border blocks :(
