I had a productive couple of hours yesterday afternoon.
I had added borders to the 4 leftover Square Dance blocks on Friday so yesterday I cut backings and sandwiched them together using odd scraps of batting. I machine quilted diagonally across the block, eyeballing a fairly regular distance between the rows. Trimmed them and sewed around the edges ready to send to Alison of Little Island Quilting for her on-going Soy Amado project.
I won't post these until after Christmas and New Year but they are finished! 4 more UFO blocks sorted.
I also sandwiched Mr Scarecrow so he's all ready for quilting.
I used a piece of brown Laura Ashley fabric for the backing, which has been lurking in my stash for a very long time - originally gifted to me and was a much larger piece which I have snipped away at over the years. Still got some left.
I bought a Ditch stitch foot for my Janome so will try this out, ditch-stitching the borders.
Lovely to see these UFOs on the way to being finished.
