And so it GROWS

41.5 x 36"
I quilted the center part in about 1.5 hours and was then ready to start adding borders. Rather than add one skinny border after another I sewed a group of them and made them look like they were sewn Log Cabin style.






The first border strip set was 7" wide and the second set was 9". I did the 'insert the batting afterwards' construction.
The quilting was done in concentric rectangles and is something I have never done before. It was easy to do on a small piece, turning and turning. This was not done free motion.
 The interesting thing about this method is that it is self-wonking. I cut all my strips nice and straight and in the process of sewing, quilting and trimming them, they move, and curve and look purposefully askew.
What a fun surprise!
Now I want to add more length and width and have to decide if I am going to square up my edges or leave them curving.

And now your Daily Dawgs.

    Nice to see that you have found a new technique that works for you.
    I have started knitting, after realizing how much yarn I have. It will be small hats and socks bound for Kongo. I think that's why I got this link from my fiancé, saying: now I finally understand your behaviour... http://kateohkatie.wordpress.com/2011/07/12/a-metaphor-gone-too-far/ it gave me a good laugh.
    How are the tomatoes coming along? Devoured by racoons and deer yet?

  11. What a lovely fresh set of colors for your quilt. Makes me feel cool all over!
    Does self-wonking mean you've given up deliberate wonking? Or is this just the lazy wonking method?
