Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Design wall Monday Oct 24

I've made some progress on the Beach Cottage quilt, using the Charlevoix jelly roll I had in my stash. I have the first 4 rows sewn together. And the bonus triangle units are all sewn together into a partial pieced border, to go on opposite corners of the quilt. I am thinking, at this point, that I will do up the same number of four patches per side, as the triangle units, to go on the other corners, to balance it off. I'm not sure what I'll do to make up the distance left between the four patches and the triangles. I think there will be another green border, and then I have a whole pile of 2 1/2 inch squares left from the jelly roll to make another pieced border. At that point, it will measure somewhere around 63 x 75. Does that classify as a twin sized quilt? Hmmmmmmm..........  
I'm linking up to Judy's Patchwork Times for her design wall monday linky party, where there is always lots to see.


  1. Love this quilt...especially that HST border! I always have to use those. I really enjoyed making this pattern a couple of years ago. Yours is coming out very nicely. You should post the final product with Kim Brackett's flicker group.


  2. I love the way you "think out loud" as you reason out how you're going to progress! It's always fun to watch it unfold!! Oh, and in *my* mind it does classify as twin. :)

  3. Love the pieced border and the additional interest it brings!

  4. Beautiful quilt. Love the pieced borders.

  5. Love your fabric choice for this pattern. Just so soothing and comfy looking. Nice job.

  6. That's going to be a beautiful quilt. I really like your borders.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
