Judy's Challange


I finished my squares border today. My favorite part of the pattern I think are the little squares so I wanted them to stand out the most. I made my squares by cutting strips 6" long sewing these strips and then cutting them for the border



This is really fun seeing everyone's quilts they are all so different.

Your quilt blocks with the s1uares added look wonderful! I think the appeal of the little squares is the "scrappy" thing that appeals to so many of us..*VBS* The quilt will look great!

I love watching your quilt "grow". The outlining squares are awesome. Tangled up in "life with teenagers" right now, but when I read your blog, I'm quilting every day. Thanks.
