Project for the Week

It is Cotton On quilters this coming Saturday and I have been madly working on piecing the centre blocks for the raffle quilt, in the hope I get it done so we can baste it at club. There are 100 of these bunnies to join together:

And then the 4 borders and 4 corner blocks get sewn on. Did you know that 100 blocks, each with 8 points makes for a LOT of point-matching!

The blocks look lovely, are you going to sew all 100 together yourself?

Did you get others in your guild to make the blocks or did you do them all? I haven't seen this block before and it looks like it would have lots of interesting ways to set it. Can't wait to see it all put together. The point matching will be a good challenge.

Point matching? do we bother about point matching?

Megan said...

You're doing a beautiful job, it is looking great, including the points!

Whoaa!! 100 blocks? Matching points? I think these would be getting a little mini sashing so that I didn't have to bother with that aspect of putting them together.
When I'm machine quilting I use rubber thimbles like they use in banks to count notes, but not on all my fingers. Experiment and see how many you need. They really do give you extra grip on the quilt sandwich.
