Emilie Elizabeth is almost a flimsy. I made the four corners blocks which will reside in the borders. Those of you that have taken my Patchwork Math class can probably spot the quilting components I made for this block. See if you can pick them out. There are 12 half square triangles, 4 squares in a triangle, 4 flying geese....and a Partridge in a Pear Tree! Okay, I'm being silly now, but the table was full of an assembly line of components.
The 56 square in a square are all sewn together and attached to the quilt.
I'm really pleased with the explosion of color around this quilt. I tried to incorporate every fabric from the Judie's Quilt Album . I used only red fabrics in the first version of the quilt. I also added this little 1/2" of red inner border instead of using blue. It makes a nice addition to the quilt.
The 9" borders are all pieced, ironed and ready to go.
Please come back tomorrow.....the day of the big reveal!
