I was able to get 3 Vet quilts finished this week. I can't count the yardage for these as the fabric was bought with donations.
I used 2.5 inch strips for this quilt, the blocks are 12 inches finished. I used red flannel on the back.
Love making floating stars as there is no chance of cutting off the star points.
I think our group of beginner quilters will be focusing more on 1/2 sq triangle quilts as they are getting pretty good at marking and stitching on the lines. Not so much at squaring up the blocks so I will continue doing that. They are all expert pressers! And for some unexplainable reason I cannot get them to do a constant 1/4 inch seam. I think once the pressure of these 50 Vet quilts are behind us I will be giving them beginning lessons and will be able to spend more time on the basics.
This next quilt was made with the 1/2 sq triangles made by the group. I think it turned out pretty good. 60x70
I'm gonna leave you with a picture of our Sweet Ruby - she is now 3 years old. She is the best dog for me, very obedient, easy to train.
