I have finished the quilt I had intended for Julia who sadly died before it was completed and last night at Quayquilters quilt group I added the label, and for two others. This setting is seen quite often now. my source was a quilt on the regional stand at last years FOQ which used novelty fabrics. I whipped out my tape measure: the oblongs were 5" by 3" bordered either horizontally or vertically by 1" strips to form a 5" (finished) square.
I have just seen another on Helen of the Bailey's webshots site, 2007 album, which uses strips in the centre. I am just sewing strips togetherwondering how to use them and this provided a solution. I hope this is the link:
I have stacked all my files away and yesterday afternoon cut out all the pieces for a quilt in one fell swoop, borders and all!
I am now sewing and it should go together very quickly.
