Little Ruby Quilt Along - Part 3

Welcome back to the Little Ruby Quilt Along!   

You’re expecting a parade of beautiful pictures of my finished “Little Ruby” quilt(s), right?  I know that’s what today is supposed to be all about but instead I’m taking you back behind the seams and showing you my continued work in progress . . . Quilt Assembly . . .  also known as Part 3.

In my previous post, I mentioned not being too keen on the “light” version of Little Ruby but I had a “plan” or idea on what I could do to change my opinion.  Initially it did NOT involve ripping blocks apart but like my very first quilt teacher said to me . . . “if you sew, you will rip.”  And that’s what I did.

I ripped my light blocks apart and resewed them so each block contained the same print; I like it so much better.  

Don’t worry, I was only 10 blocks in when I made this decision; definitely worth the time and effort don’t you think?

I liked the plan and started working the plan . . . . . sewing the quilt top!

As my “light” Little Ruby started taking shape, I contemplated leaving the “rick rack” sides on . . . .

. . . . but decided to stay true to the plan and add a floral strip mitered border instead.

Well, what do you think?  Was it a good plan?  Don’t worry; I will have a Part 4 to show you my finished quilt(s) so stay tuned!  

In the meantime, let’s get you to that eye candy parade you were looking for to begin with.   Start your tour from the top or shuffle around but enjoy the show!
