We’ve also had a couple of rounds of additions to our group of travelling quilts for Round Trip Quilts! For the second round, I got to add on to Chelsea’s quilt. Chelsea blogs over at Patch the Giraffe and her quilt is themed around solids with a low volume background. I love the paper pieced stars she used for her starting block!
I decided that I was going to add one wider border to a single side of Chelsea’s quilt instead of encircling it with a smaller border. So I started off making a variety of stars and other small blocks using some solids and low volume background.
Then I laid them out alongside the quilt top and figured out I layout I liked. This allowed me to easily see and measure where I needed to fill in more low volume background.
Soon, I had a finished addition containing five blocks on a scrappy, low volume background!
I added in along the bottom of the quilt top and I love how this quilt top is coming together so far!
I hope Chelsea likes it as much as I do!
It was sent off late late year to the next person in our group so this top has even more added to it at this point!
