I remember being so excited when I pieced this quilt, because it used up 5 test blocks/borders that were just sitting around. It allowed me to play with lots of ruler work ideas that I wasn’t sure would work. In this next shot, you can see a little better how I used ruler work to create a design that “bridged” different blocks: This one might show it a bit better: The dead center was the perfect spot to throw in a mini featherette: The outer borders were kind of ho-hum quilting-wise. I threw in a bit of ruler work at the center of each border and then just used “plumify it” as my background fill design. I always feel like that is kind of a cop out but there just wasn’t enough “blank space” to do something larger: It’s always a nice feeling to complete a project. Still need to get that binding on, but that’s no biggie now that the quilting is done.
