Blue cheese sampler

True to my word, I spent the weekend working on the last round of the Round Robin quilt. When last you saw it, I had made my pinwheels, and one square-in-a-square block. So Saturday, while the boys kept watch over the rest of the quilt…

I got to making seven more square-in-a-square block. It’s actually somewhat of a time-consuming block. Especially since I as actually doing square-in-a-square-in-a-square-in-a-square!

But, it was worth the effort.

It’s such a great looking block. And one I was happy to have more practice on. With them done, it was time to put them all together with the pinwheels into the last round

Once it was on, I decided I wanted another small plain border around it all. I can’t wait to get this one quilted so I can photograph it properly. It’s a touch too big to get a decent picture on top of my bed. It really looks so much better in person.

The SSSS aren’t just on the corners, but in the centre of each row as well.

I haven’t decided on binding yet (I’ve got a couple options) but I have this lovely blue piece for the back. I ordered it from Connecting Threads during my January spend-a-thon.

If all goes as planned, I’ll have this one quilted on the weekend, and ready to show next week!

    That was definitely worth the effort with the SSSS! It is an awesome quilt top and I look forward to seeing it quilted. It’s probably a good thing that your helpers napped while construction of the SSSS blocks was underway.
