Rock Pool

I have been steadily working on this small quilt made with the left overs from the Good Times quilt. The Good times quilt was a kit made up of 40 FQs and 2 ½ yards of border and binding fabric. I think I’m going to call it Rock Pool, this is what I have so far:

This is the initial mock up, there are a few places where the blocks match and there will be some switching, spinning and trading places happening over the next few days. For now, everything is in the proper orientation, 63 nine patch blocks. These are the three blocks I came up with using the scraps. They are 2 ½ inch square, the two part version is made from the 2 inch wide strips left over from the pineapple blocks.

Here’s what I have left over, I think I’ll have enough of the dark blue for a border, if not, there’s enough for a binding.

Remaining pieces

I worked on the Costumers ball quilt yesterday. Took it off the frame and laid it on the floor and marked a straight line on the backing that ran parallel to the edge of the quilt. Then I pinned that line to the leader instead of the the backing edge. It helped straighten the quilt edge a lot, I was able to quilt the borders straight. It should be finished this weekend, and then bound with a hanging sleeve. Then on to something else, yay for finishes.
