The Finishing Plan
March 2, 2015 § 7 Comments
Welcome to March Madness, er, I mean… the month in which we will FINALLY finish up our Random Sampler quilts. I feel terribly guilty for letting this one slide. But I’m now ready to get it done. Maybe I was just missing the mental energy to work on it earlier?
Somehow, my quilt is becoming a medallion quilt. It wasn’t my intention to make it into a medallion when I started. But there it is. To get my head around what I have left to do, I divided up the remainder of the quilt into sections. Theoretically I’m calling it a border and will then make enough blocks to fill up that section for that week. The section above is the side I am going to work on first.
Then each consecutive week I will complete another section as above. Even if your quilt is not leaning towards growing into a medallion, you could still divide up the blocks into sections, determine how big you want to make each section and then work on making extra blocks for that section.
If you have seen Moda’s Modern Building Blocks, that is exactly how they are putting their quilt together. This is the first two sections of the Modern Building Blocks BOM at my local quilt shop.
Here are some of the extra blocks I would like to incorporate into my quilt. What extra blocks would you like to make for your quilt?
Let’s check back in again next week and see where we all are at. Ready. Set…. Go!
