Lots of panicky sewing this week as we continue to get ready for the launch party on Saturday, and I managed to squeeze in a finish to donate through my guild, too. Rather than do a full quilt of all 12 blocks from the 30’s Saturday Sampler program, I opted to make 2 lap quilts with 6 blocks each. Since we’ve finished 7 months in this program, I was free to make use of the first 6 blocks!
The sashing and cornerstones are cut from 5″ strips to make sure of some of my scrap stash, with two extra stars pieced onto the interior cornerstones. With an extra side border, that made the quilt about 48 x 58″, which is a good size for the target recipients (elementary school kids).
