What's on the Quilting Table #3

Today is a continuation of my "What's on the Quilting Table" Posts.  I figured it might be fun to see how and why the quilts I make happen as they do and show you the order they are done in.  These pictures and posts will all be done in the order that I do them.

Today starts with working on a Simple Squares quilt.  Instead of working on one quilt, I work on multiple at a time.  I have tons of Reunion its a line by Sweet Water.  I love this line and as such I have bought 2 fat quarter bundles of it and then since those were running out and I could not find another I then bought half yard cuts of it.  Any way I have 3 large bags full of it.

This quilt takes 12 rows of 10 3 1/2 inch squares.  I took my pile of Reunion and cut a single strip from each of my half yard and other scraps and cut them up and stuffed them in a bag months ago. Today I pulled them out and started to sew them together.

It might not look like it, but this is the center of 2 different quilts.  I assumed I would only have enough for 2, but it seems I have a 3rd worth of left over 3 1/2 inch squares which we might see later some time.

So after completing the 2 centers its time to start putting the borders on.  Tanya picked a gray with words and a gray with jack's for the inner borders.  Hope you enjoyed today's WOQT, Check back in later, to see what is next on the table.
