Our company headed north this morning, and DH left for the golf course at 7:30, so I headed right to my sewing room.
I managed to get the borders sorted out and attached to plaid quilt number 3. I had to get creative, because none of my left-over yardage was long enough for the final border. The pattern for the centre was "Smokey Mountain Stars" from Quiltville.
I "double stitched" the corner squares and had lots of half-square triangle units left, so I sewed most of them into pinwheel blocks, then used some of the leftover strips from plaid quilt #2 to make them the right size to fill the gap in the final border.
Since the two borders had corner squares, I used leftover strips from plaid quilt #1 to make strippy corner squares.
Now I have to get busy and make up the backs for each of these quilts. Then I'll plan a pin-basting binge with DH - he is an awesome help! I am determined to have NO LEFTOVER PLAID to take home in the spring!
