Right now it’s a perfect 72 inches square (well maybe not perfect). The latest plan was to only add the pieced letter borders to the top and bottom and end up with a rectangular quilt. But! I think it needs a border all the way around so now the question is do I add one more row of blocks so it won’t be square? I do have extras that were sent to me…or do I add the border with the pieced letters and have a square quilt?? I’m stewing on it for now…..
Here’s a view of the back – most blocks have a signature from the person who sent them but some have more – see the once on the (l) completely covered in writing? That one is from Bonnie and it describes the significance of all the fabric she used in her block. I’m going to make “map” once I decide the top of the quilt so I’ll know where everyone’s blocks ended up. I have this crazy idea in my head that once the quilt is done – I’ll take my time and embroider everyone’s name and location on the finished quilt. We’ll see….
And here’s the basket of quilts from the first photo – I’m documenting the donations on the HeartStrings site and these will go to Barb tomorrow at our HeartStrings Sew-in for Project Linus.
There are quilts from Barbara in FL, from the St. Mary’s quilters in CT, from Deborah, and from Deb in AZ in this batch – all of them sent tops for me to quilt and donate.
