Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Resuming Nifty Thrifty


I swung by the library to pick up a couple of books and while I was there, I picked up two books on CD.  Earlier in the evening, I opened up one of the books and couldn’t get past the first two or three paragraphs.  I think it was a sign that I needed to get back to the sewing machine.  So, I popped in the first disc of The Bone Box by Bob Hostetler and resumed working on Nifty Thrifty.

The missing 5 blocks are done, but the red cornerstones are turned wrong on 4 of the blocks.  The 5th block is missing the sashing.  Looking at the picture now, I see why I was having issues on where the long strips were supposed to go.  I’m missing outer sashing on the right and bottom — but before I can do that, I need to figure out the border arrangement.  I also need to decide if I need to make another 10 blocks.

  1. Nice shirtings or homespuns you have there. It all depends on how big you wnat this quilt to be. Or who gets it when it is finished!

  2. Ohhh, lovely quilt. I like plaids and the pattern you chose is perfect for them. This quilt looks warm and comforting to me. How big are your blocks?.
