#100 days100Blocks 2019

I joined Gnome Angel last year and made 100 blocks in blues and whites during the year.
I posted some of them, here, here, here

My Sunday Stitchers' UFO challenge number for April was #2 - to make the flimsy for that project.  As they were all still individual blocks - that was a tough call - fortunately Easter and a lock down helped and I got it done - just!!



The blocks were - 50 8" x 8" and 50 4" x 8".  So i joined the 50 small ones and made 25 blocks and then did a 8 across and 9 down layout.  I originally had another plan in mind . .
.but didn't like it once I started to lay it out.  So went with this. 


My original plan was "just a quilt"...but it's a fairly good size for a queen sized bed, so it might end up there...(should have put slightly wider borders on...oh well...).
and I made the binding at the same time...supposedly that is a good thing to do...before you use the left over fabric for something else perhaps??

I have a few small  things to tick off my list and then I can work on next months's project...looks like more binding is needed...
Speaking of which .... I knew I should have been able to make more green binding when I made the last lot for the  WMQG (for the bush fire quilts) ...I found the rest of the fabric , so I made 4 more.




Happy Sewing

All your blocks look amazing sewn together into the flimsy and I like the grey sashing....
Bindings make a great gift to help make fire quilts...

Lovely finish. Yes, I think it's best to make the binding right away, or at lease store the fabric with the flimsy, so you won't be tempted to use it for something else.
