Yesterday I got all the rows sewn together. I still have two outside sashing pieces to sew on. They are sewn, but not pressed. So sometime today it will be a completed top.
I have to look for a back. Since it is a utility quilt I think it will be something neutral. Been trying to figure out quilting for it. I think just a diagonal quilting to cross all the blocks.
This kind of quilt can be masculine or feminine. It has pinks in it and yet it is neutral enough it could be a guy quilt.
It is almost queen sized. 4-patches are 2.5 inch squares sewn into 4-patches and the sashing is 2 inches wide and the cornerstones are 2 inches square. Really straight forward sewing.
This is a true scrap quilt. Everything, but the kitchen sink is sewn into this one. Men's shirtings, solids, prints, plaids and stripes. When stitching the 2.5 inch squares together I just made sure there were not two of the same print or color in the 4-patches.
I have a bucket with 2.5 and 2 inch squares always cut. Then when I just need to sew I make 4 and 9 patches and put them away for a future project. The zippered bag had over three hundred 4-patches in it. I used 224 for this quilt.
Hope you are sewing lots these cold Winter days. Hettie we know it is hot where you are. Chris
