Yesterday's finishes



This is Suzi and her quilt. These are the practice blocks from last year when I was trying out improv blocks. Just a bunch of scraps but they look nice and bright for Suzi. I only had the binding left to do. Don't know why I never finished it. I found it in the bottom drawer of my sewing desk and decided to finish it up.

I also put together this month's Schnibble Tagalong.

.
I'm still struggling with the square in a square block. The pattern called for them to be 5" unfinished but if I did that, I would have lost lots of points. I ended up squaring them at 6.5". The other 9 patches were already 5" so they needed some borders to bring them up to size. I actually like the way it turned out.
