I tried to pick different blocks, ones that I never did before, also some of my favorites, plus they had do look good together. I added plain dark blue fabric here and there in the blocks to set them off.
I machine quilted 1/4 inch around parts of each block to set them off and then put a fancier stitch in the boarder. For the backing I used all my large scraps from the front that were left over. So it actually looks good either way.
Looks good on my swing, to me adds that finishing touch. The finished size is 50" X 50", to me, the perfect lap quilt for when the weather gets cooler. My hubby and I will still be able to swing.
Happy Quilting......Have a Great Day!!
