Happy to be Square

By | May 5, 2020

I have a couple of conference calls (no video) and a webcast to thank for my latest finish. Hand sewing down a binding really is the perfect way to make what tend to be long winded and not so interesting calls more useful.

Here are a couple of pictures of my Happy to be Square quilt made from what else but happy blocks. 

The fabric for the backing was thrifted for $3.99 and was exactly the right size for this quilt! Not even enough waste to cut out some 1.5″ strips. When the world opens up again and our quilt guild can meet this will be donated to the charity quilt program.

I have several other tops that have been quilted. Next on the agenda to make some binding so I have something to do on more boring calls.  Those calls seem to be happening with some regularity.

    So very bright and cheerful! And finishing off the hand sewing is a brilliant way to combine too slow tasks into one much more enjoyable experience. Thanks for sharing at the Chameleon’s Colour party.
