Sun Bonnet Sue moving along

This is the quilt so far I have over half of it sewn together. I have done it in sections of 4 blocks together and then added the last row to the square units.  The sections of 4 blocks on the left need to be put together and and then I will sew them to the right side that is together I need to add a sashing strip to both sides and across the bottom and then a piano key border around the whole thing. I wish to lay it on the bed it will be going on and see how wide the border strips need to be.

Moving forward on the Sun Bonnet Sue quilt

Today I have been working on the black sashing on the Sun Bonnet Sue blocks. I have the black on two sides of all the blocks except for the last row I want to sew them all together and then put a full lenght strip on each side.

Well except for the top because I was not thinking and sew the strip on the top of each of the block so that strip will be pieced. Sigh!  Oh Well I am definitely not perfect. I do like the look after I sew some of the rows together I will snap a new picture.

I also got a block done up with a picture of the maker to go on the top. I think it works. We will see how it finals out. Then I am going to take it and lay it on the bed that it will go on and see what lenght I want the piano key border on the quilt.

Where did Feb go

No idea where the month went but it sure did fly by.  I been busy in Feb working on a fund raiser event for the local Opera House. That went well. I am not back to my sewing room and working on a farmers wife block. Need to get back into that grove I fell behind on the group's goals oh well it will get done as it gets done.

I will be going to a class sponsored by our guild NEIQG for a quilt design by Quilt Moments and the pattern's name is Twilight Kaleidoscope  I need to decided on the border print and from there what the quilt will be.

The designer has some beautiful quilts on her sight that I do really like. Though why I am starting a new project I am not sure.
