Gail’s 3-patch quilt top done!
Using an idea Sophie posted, I sewed blocks together in panels, put borders on the panels, sewed the panels together and then used the remaining blocks in the border. If I were doing it again, I would use the same color fabric to border each panel and in between the blocks that form the outside border.
I used every block I received and made two additional to have 3 blocks on the top and bottom borders.
My husband said this quilt top is “gorgeous”! First time he has said that about a quilt I made 🙂
