It went together in quadrants, like this:
Here are the four quadrants squished together, ready for assembly:
Hooray! The top half is sewn together:
Here is the completed top with our generous volunteer, NeedleB:
I knew you would want to see the completed Thomas Fire relief quilt top. Isn't is lovely?! Here is one last look:
The thing you are going to want to remember is the technique that we used for creating the border!!! Scrappy border chunks were added as the rows were assembled. It saves the maker from having to wrangle long borders AFTER the top has been put together. The hardest part is not forgetting this slick trick BEFORE the blocks have been transformed into a top!
Thank you to all members of CCLQ who contributed blocks for our Thomas Fire Relief Quilt! Gratitude goes out to C. Breeze Quilt Studio for volunteering to do the quilting on this group project. We appreciate the time and talent that will go into stitching!!
Until next time...
Sew Some Love!!!
