I finished the quilting on this Community Quilts project, and added binding. It feels great to get back to some quilting!
I saw this Bonnie Hunter block in the latest Quiltmaker magazine, so thought it might be good for using my strips in bins. It is made from 2 inch and 1 1/2 inch strips, so I've been cutting like mad to make sure I have a good variety of colours before I sew any more.
The sample is made with 2 inch strips in the inner rows and 1 1/2 inch strips in the outer rows. To make the block you make 2 like this, and 2 reversed, with the 1 1/2 inch strips as the inner rows and the 2 inch strips as the outer.
4 block segments go together to make the finished block, and the only matching is at the hourglass seams. I can't wait to get more of these sewn, but I have more quilting to do for Community Quilts, and my Pfaff has to go in for repairs this morning. I could piece on my Juki, but it doesn't have as accurate a 1/4" foot, so I mostly use it for quilting, which it does wonderfully!
