Welcome to the last day of our Show your Stripes Blog Hop. I hope you have had fun this week with all the striped projects. A big thank you to Carla for organising this blog hop. She always does a fantastic job. Today we have the following bloggers sharing their projects.
Thursday, February 25th
I have had a busy start to the year, so the plan was to do a small project. Placemats or maybe a small table topper was the plan. I picked the fabric and cut enough to sew a sample block to check I was happy with it.
At that point something happened! I found myself picking another striped fabric and cutting into that one along the first one. I needed more blocks. As you can see I started with the one on the left and then add the red one. Picture of bolts to prove I didn"t sew the red one.
Cutting /Sewing frenzy at this point. A Blissful sewing session happening. Chain piecing, the music going and so on.
This is where I got stuck. A border or no border? As I was sewing it I was thinking no border but then I thought a solid border and then maybe one of the stripes I used in the blocks as a border. Choices?
So I had a little give away for you. The prize is this striped bundle below -4 x 50cm width of fabric = 2 metre of fabric.
All you have to do to be in the draw to win this prize is let me know what you would do with the quilt top. Leave it as is, maybe add a border or two, you tell me what you think would look good. On the 1st March 2021 I will draw a winner for this prize from the comments left.

Until Next Time
