Border blocks

I still kept on stitching after yesterday's post, so now all my border blocks for my Lucinda's Gift Chimneys and Cornerstones quilt are done.



Looking at all the blocks together I can see that I probably should have mixed up my scraps a little bit more, especially the lights, but all in all I very pleased with how it turned out! It will be a pretty and fun quilt with lots of different prints and textures since I have mixed and matched all sorts of bits and pieces from my scrap box. Now to get the top stitched together :-)

Ups! I just notice looking at the picture that I have twisted a block the wrong way - need to make sure that doesn't happen when I sew the quilt together!

Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

It's looking so lovely. The camera helps find those boo boo's. I love the meaning behind these blocks and will pray for those lives cut short in Norway too.

This quilt is really outstanding. I love the border blocks which gives the quilt a secondary design. WOW!!!

I can´t see the "mistake". I think that when you look at the quilt you first notice how much light is there which is as you say the symbol for joy and happiness.

Quilten din blir kjempefin. Håper noen sier fra til meg om jeg gjør samme "brøleren" som du - men du hadde vel ikke sydd sammen enda her?
8 kantblokker helt ferdig her nå, og resten på god vei
