(1) clocks with pendulums
(2) coffee cups with a logo
(3) Olympic winners... U-S-A! U-S-A!!
I haven't watched every event but I don't think we're doing too bad, the ballroom skaters were simply beautiful!
So here's the completed Sue and stars top, minus one more border:
I used more of the crumb blocks to cut the 2-1/2" cornerstones, alternated with some pretty blue and gold fabric from my stash.
The blue fabric is called Cherry Jubilee by Mary Lou Weidman (Bernartex). I don't know how long I've had it or if it's still available, but I think it's perfect for the inner border. Those pieces are all I had left after cutting the strips - I can get a few 2-1/2" squares, then that fabric is history!
The cornerstones look pretty good! Doesn't it feel great when you can make a quilt not only from stash, but a lot of it is scraps? The only yardage was the blue border fabric.
Now I have to decide what to do for the outer border, probably something in a dark gold, I'll shake my stash to see what falls out!
If you head on over to see Felicia at The Slow Quilter, she's having a birthday giveaway! Everybody can use a jelly roll, you just might be the lucky winner.
Have a great day, do something creative and fun... sew forth and sew on til later!
