Cursory play in Electric Quilt gave me a general layout
and number of blocks to achieve a useful size.
Looked simple enough!
|I had trouble keeping my diagonal set lined up nicely on the wall!|
Diagonally set quilts always have a tendency to skew out of shape. I spent the best part of an afternoon measuring, cutting, and pinning to get those borders on the way I wanted them. And even so I can see a couple of spots that will require some attention during the quilting to ensure a nice flat end product.
|I am very pleased with the completed top.|
And did this project use up that original pile of squares? Of course not! Some of those pieces were the wrong colour or wrong value. Actually that pile is now larger than when I began -- with the addition of pieces from other fabrics that were auditioned and didn't make the cut!
