Each day over the last week, I have spent a few hours constructing the inner border for my Going Dutch quilt.The 3 sections are not assembled yet, and I know it doesn’t look like I have accomplished much, but there was a lot of little pieces to work with, especially when it comes to the pinwheels which were made with scraps from the tulip blocks and are only 3” square.
First I made all the blue and green flying geese border pieces, of which there are 42.
Next I cut 4 border strips of the dark blue Grunge fabric, which will hold appliquéd Sunbonnet Sue’s, Sam’s and “wooden” shoes. This is the part of the quilt I can’t wait to spend time working on.
Lastly I have all 66 pinwheels made from the trimmings of the tulip blocks.
Next week I will add dark blue borders to each one and sew everything together.
I hope everyone has a safe and joy-filled weekend!!
