"Critter Comfort" - progress
Putting the blocks together was easy. There was a lot of non-traditional flopping back and forth, so some sort of labeling was needed. There was some organization of fabrics and colors, not a lot. The back sashing was cut just 1 inch, and front sashing cut 1 1/2 in. then folded in half. The seams/batting nested together nicely. It was not easy to get the back sashing seam threads in the right place so as not to show -- I was only partly successful. A busy backing would help.
This is not a quilt for a show - it's a quilt for a little kid - he/she won't care if seams show. I will simply bind it, not add borders. Actually, making this little quilt was a delightful experience -- I had been wanting to do something different, and those cheerful critters made me happy!
