Here's what I am working on this weekend
I am trying to use as many of the red & white squares that I received in the swap. All of the rows are sewn so now it is time to put the rows together. Once the borders are on it, the quilt will be about the size of a twin. I think this quilt will spend the winter thrown over the sofa in the living room. I am going to quilt this on my big Janome using the walking foot. I will stitch in the ditch and then sew a line of supplemental stitching mid-way through the zig-zag. I will have to purchase additional fabric for the borders and binding. Someone suggested that I do an inner border in black. Though I think it would be striking, I really want to keep this bi-colored. My plan is to use a red tonal for the inner border, white for the outer border and then bind in the red. I am definitely going to have to throw a "Color Catcher" into the washer when I launder this one!
