Just spent 4.5hrs cutting out all the pieces for my Project Linus Quilt  :angel:
This evening I shall begin to make the initial blocks. I'm aiming for 36" x 36" when blocks are finished, then a narrow ( " ) border before binding..... but...... who knows??  :ninja:

On the home straight.  I'm hand sewing the binding down.  I just squeezed it out of the leftover bits of fabric.
Life's too short for ironing.

Right, the second quilt top that meets the TSP colour requirements is ready for quilting, but I’ve a dilemma when it comes to the binding. Do I go with the one that looks better but is the “wrong” colour or do I go with the one that is within the “rules”?

I would go for the better looking one.  The rules are informal suggestions for the TSP challenge.  PL will accept any colour or design, but the nicer they look the better for the eventual recipient.

Go for  what looks best with the quilt SIT  .....

or you could post a teeny teaser pic of a portion of the quilt with the two options and we could help you choose??  :devil:

Thanks for the feedback. I’ve had a rummage in my stash and found a couple of other options that might work so I will see how they look once the quilting is finished.

Well I’ve got my fabric, A very safe choice, but that’s just me at the moment. My quilting chutzpah seems to have gone walk about.

I have a totally free day on Saturday, so no matter how good the weather is I am going to get all my pieces cut and sorted. I can then just piece a block a day until my DH free weekend in early July, when I can make up the top, layer, quilt and bind. Then post off to Imi on the Monday.

That’s the plan anyway  :S

I intended to stitch the borders on mine at my quilt group yesterday.  I had pressed it and it was on my board so I thought I must remember that in the morning as I put my bits together.  In the morning I thought it again while I ate my breakfast.  I finished packing my bits, got in my car and went to my group.  When there I set everything out and I had the borders but the main piece was still on my board at home.  Good job I only live ten minutes away.

I've finished and I love it  :loveit:  (Is it alright to love your own stuff?)
I have remembered to take pictures.
@Iminei do you want it sent to you yet or would you rather wait until nearer the time?
