Blue and White Mile a Minute

Blue and White Mile a Minute blocks

This is the last Saturday of the colour Blue for the RainbowScrap Challenge and I have a few Blue and White Mile a Minute blocks made up, this is just a sampling, as I actually have just over 80 blue and white blocks.  I’m going to have to look for some sashing, cornerstones and border fabric and then they will be a quilt!  Have a look at soscrappy to see what others have done for the last week of blue.

Sewing fills my days, not to mention the living room, bedroom, and closets.

Mile a Minute Quilts Finished

It’s July and if you bring me a Mile a Minute quilt before the end of this month you will get a 30% reduction on the longarm quilting fee.

Blue Mile a Minute Quilt
Pat followed my Mile a Minute Tutorial and completed three quilts which she brought me to quilt in May.  Pat pointed out that the fabric for each of these quilts came out of the same scrap collection, so the blocks are basically the same; just the sashing, cornerstones and borders are different.  And what a difference it makes.

Pat also used the same fabric for the cornerstones and border, a nice touch that really brings the quilt together, I plan to copy this on future Mile a Minute quilts that I make.  Congratulations on completing three beautiful quilts from your scraps Pat.

Sewing mends the soul.
