I have to hand sew the binding on my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt before it is completely finished, but first had to lay out the Bonnie Hunter 2013 Leader & Ender Challenge blocks I sewed last fall. There are many designs these blocks could make, but I decided to go with the original Perkiomen Valley design.
This lay out is 12 x 14 blocks (72″ x 84″). I had planned to sew borders on the center, but now I’m reconsidering. I will piece more blocks and add another round of the design which will make it 84″ by 96″. I will decide then if I want to add a narrow border, or, if I want to add more blocks to make it 96″ by 108″ (king size). I’m liking the looks of pieced quilts without borders.
Of course, the beauty of this quilt is enhanced by my almost two-year-old grandson.
