Ironically, I gave a talk at my guild meeting this morning on “Finishing Strong” and going over basics and tips on batting, backing, and binding. So today’s Sunday Stash report is on starting strong. The 14 pillowcases certainly help, as does finishing one of the Grand Illusion quilts (pictures whenever it stops raining, because it’s been raining for DAYS, ugh).
Here’s the finished baby version of Bonnie’s pattern, but with a simple outer border instead of the pieced one during basting.
And here’s a center with no sashing between the blocks – I’m using the sashing pieces and the pieced border to finish this top out.
You can see more Grand Illusion progress on Bonnie’s blog.
