It's not square anymore

My quilt isn't square anymore. I liked it round, but square is better for practical purposes. I think I have a name for it too, how does "Inside the Square" sound? "Doing the Rounds" was another suggestion.


I am really enjoying sewing down the bias, and it's going on much better than I anticipated. I've also been thinking about what comes next, something for the corners. I cut paper to test ideas.........a few going on in this pic. The diamond isn't right, but I like the flower and circles design.



We have finally had a wonderful rainy weekend, maybe some cold weather will come soon too.

Happy stitching,
Susan x

  15. Great to hear your thinking Susan and I love the corner flower and dots idea! That bias vine border is so yummy. Either name would be good I think:)
    We have had a couple of cold mornings recently - like 5 degrees for my walk this morning - definitely a woolly gloves walk! I love it - makes me feel energised. Glad you enjoyed some rain.
