Finished Objects Friday

Okay, I'm going to cheat and show off a project I finished five years ago. The squares in this quilt are all 1/2" larger in both dimensions than they were supposed to be for an online swap for which I'd signed up. At 49 pieces per square, I was NOT going to redo the squares, so I put them together for a quilt for my husband's study. The corners of the squares are in the middle of the four-patches. See in the close-up where a burgundy square and a red square butt up against each other unevenly? That's a borderline.

The border is from the beginning of my pinwheel fixation, with some random other squares thrown in. I pieced those pinwheels to each other (and to the quilt itself) while riding shotgun on a long trip back from visiting the in-laws. A lot of the white fabric in this quilt is leftovers from my wedding dress (which I made from cotton eyelet lace).

I am in charge of a members-only donated fabric sale at the quilt guild tomorrow. We loaded five cars with boxes from the storage unit this afternoon. It'll be fun.

I look at these big quilts you do in awe! All of those points scare me! I have 12 of my 28 squares done though. I think I'm doing pretty well so far.
