My mom sewed the long strips- two sets- black color black, and color black color and then into a tube (sewn on the sides of the sets). I cut them into triangles that open up into squares. They sat for a while because I trimmed the last squares 1/4" smaller than the rest of them and could not make the decision to either make the quilt smaller or trim all the other squares. Finally, I trimmed them all and laid it out. It looks a bit wild.
For the next 4 days I will be at a quilt retreat and hope to get this sewn together as well as other tops. They feed us, we sew and sleep- what is not to like about that?
