Well….I did it….I stuck to the # 1 project and got it completely assembled. Next up is borders; backing; quilting etc etc etc….But, the hard part is done, and now I can move on to Project # 2….
For your view pleasure, I present my version of Scrap Dance Tango; a quilt designed by Carole – From My Carolina Home blog . My project is going to finish as a KING SIZE QUILT. Currently the quilt is 88 x 104″ set with the blocks 11 across and 13 down. I chose the “a/b” setting. Carole finished her quilt with a 2″ background fabric and a 3 ” green print border. I know I better do a little “measuring” with the quilt on my bed so I can check out the drop etc before I make a final decision on borders etc.
Thanks Carole for a FUN mystery quilt. For those “new readers” a little back story —- we started this in January with cutting instructions and construction of half square triangles. In my case, it was 1430 half square triangles, finishing at 2.5″. Once a month, Carole presented the next “step” in the dance (I mean pattern); with the final step revealed on June 10th. If you are interested in this pattern, it will soon be available for sale. Check Carole’s blog post for more details.
I thought I would share with you a picture of just the basic blocks – before the assembly began, so you can envision from where it all started:
Special thanks to my friends who continue to bless my life with little “scraps” of fabric, especially Cindy J. and Nancy B. I welcome their contribution to this project. The only fabric that I purchased was the white background fabrics. I made those “scrappy” also, so I could stay with the Scrap Dance Tango theme of things.
Now, it is time to move on to Project # 2 – Addison’s Quilt – which is simply lacking 2 borders!!
This may be a finishing kind of weekend in terms of quilt tops!! Stay tuned.
