Retreat packing plans have gone astray. I was going to take this little quilt and do part 3 there but I just couldn't leave it alone this morning. This is Faithful from Humble Quilts. In just a few minutes (or a bit more), I was sewing on the last border.
At first I had cut the fabric for border #2 the same as #1. Then while digging for something else, I found the print I used for #2. I find it rather fun that the lines are not perfect but a tad bit wavy. Is that the way I sewed it or is that the way it was printed??? I'm not telling........ I can't wait for part 4.
My bin of little half square triangles was getting low. I had oodles of unfinished 1 1/2" HSTs and lots of 2" that I cut down to 1 3/4". While digging I also found a baggie full of 2" half square triangles. I can't wait to press them open and see what I have. I'm hoping part 4 uses 2". It's so fun to use little bits of what I already have. It makes me think I'm making a dent in my stash.........I am, a little bit at a time.
Now back to retreat packing.....2 more getups.
