My Sunflowers quilt top is finished — right on deadline for my own little Quiltathon to join in with Judy Laquidara’s big Quiltathon.

I was able to make the quilt top larger by adding four borders, and it’s now 50 inches square.

The yellow print below is going to be the binding and backing, the blue fabric is what I used for the wide border, and the small pieces are what I used for the pieced border.  I sewed the little bits together in Chinese Coin fashion, and then trimmed them to get four equal width strips to go all the way around.

My Stash Report totals for this week are:

Bought this week:  0
Total fabric in this year (bought and gift): 54 yards
Used this week:  2.5 yards
Used year-to-date:  37 yards
Total (net):  -17 yards

Happy Quilting!

For Judy’s Quiltathon this week, I’m working on a UFO project of 4-inch squares in cheerful sunflower prints.   I can’t remember what these squares were for, but they’re cute.

Today I have sewn them into 4-patch blocks and arranged them in sewing order on my design wall.

This is going to be a small quilt, maybe 40 inches square when finished, but it will make a good table covering or picnic rug.   Just in time for the end of summer!

Happy Quilting!
