Puss in the Corner was started with blocks left from my Wilfred & Cloves quilt. All the fabrics from the original quilt have been used and I pulled more from the stash. Yes, it has made a dent, a small dent but still it has reduced the stash a little.
Isn't this a busy quilt?
With side triangles you get a 3 patch block. Those little squares finish at 1" each, the quilt block itself finishes at 5-1/2".
A 2" finished border has been added to the sides of the quilt and she measures 90" by 104". The binding will be the same fabric.
I had originally planned to sew blocks for puss in the corner at the April Jane Stickle retreat. Plan B was to sew them at the November retreat which was also cancelled 😢. I wasn't going to wait until spring 2021 so I pulled the box and got going. Now I can cross this project off the list.
This quilt will never be among my favorite quilts, I'm a blue fan, but I do like this quilt. It was fun to make a quilt using a color combination I don't normally use.
Some people have mentioned I sewed this quilt fast. Strip piecing and chain stitching are a quilter's friend. If you remember, I pressed the teal/red blocks differently then the pink/brown blocks. The blocks locked together perfectly right. Here is a picture of the back.
For now the flimsy is going into the waiting to be quilted closet. I know I won't be hand quilting it, I'll wait until I need a quilt for someone then have it longarmed.
Of course there were 1-1/2" strips and small pieces left from piecing. I could place those strips and pieces neatly, tidy and orderly in the 1-1/2" strip box then close the lid until another day . . . but hey, where's the fun in that?
So what did I do? Started a new quilt of course, the Lost in the Crowd quilt. But the name of my quilt is going to be the Forever quilt because it's going to take forever to make! Forever definitely won't be a fast quilt and that's ok.
