Checkerboard Borders

Been working on the cutting for Shelly's quilt. I did the cutting for the inner Cross blocks and the outer Star blocks in late November/early December. The checkerboard borders were a little more involved. First there was cutting and sorting into sets of three.

Then sewing the sets together.

Pressing came next.

Finally, crosscutting the strip sets into smaller units, and sorting them into the sets for each side border and each top/bottom border.

My lovely husband Tim is always somewhat bemused by this process of cutting large pieces of fabric into small pieces, sewing them together, sometimes cutting them some more, and then sewing all the bits back together into one big piece.
