I continued my Brown Bag Quilt Contest process with selecting the pattern.
I added the striped fabric in next to the center block and cut it at an angle so that it would make a "V" when the blocks were sewn together. I didn't worry about getting the stripes lined up in every block as I didn't have enough fabric to waste. And didn't want to risk running out.
I like to chain pc. my sewing. It just goes much faster that way. Once I get my next strip added to each block, I take them over to the ironing board and press.
And continue on around the log cabin block in the same manner until they are all done and pressed.
I continued adding my borders until I got it the size I wanted for my table. My second border is of my own creation as I needed to add some more fabric that I had not yet put into the over quilt design. Plus I wanted this to fit my table just so it hangs down a few inches on each side. So I got a little creative on the borders - but won't show all the border's here until the whole quilt is done. You only get to see the sides for now. I can't give away all the surprises now yet, can I. LOL
Here it is! The flimsy is done and I think it looks GREAT! Oh if you could really see the colors as they truly are. I am very happy with this project so far.
The label is the same as the lighter fabric seen in the blocks.
I then pin making sure everything is laying nice and flat and the lines are not being pulled out of alignment.
That is all I'm going to do for today.
I'll post the final steps and the photo's of the finished piece when I'm done.
Have a great and creative week. : )
