I sort  of worked on a quilt, I got everything ready, so after lunch I will get at least one of them done.

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

You all here inspire me to try things. So I went and watched the You Tube on tube quilting and after a few mistakes finally got some right! lol My sister wants an outrageous Pink and black quilt so I grabbed some fabric and tried it. Not perfect but, hey, it was fun. I'll make a few more before I sew them together.

 

I did get the binding done for the cat quilt so that's ready. Then because it's such a beautiful day, sun shine and all I went outside for a while with my dogs. Now I'll rest my back for a bit and then go make some more blocks.

This is why I like this site so much- just look at the inspiration we get and examples like these 'tube' blocks!

Marie, didnt take as you saying I had a problem, only offering help which I always take.  What I am thinking is like you said, adding a narrow border, then a 4 or 5 inch one to make it look like matting a picture.  But make the "matting" plain so it doesnt take away from the square.

What is a tube quilt?  It that the one you sew tubes together side by side and then stuff them?

Well I guess I asked that question a little too soon. I think I have seen this method of making blocks somewhere. I did work on a quilt today, still quilting on the black/white print with red stars, wanted to get it done today but got on the computer instead. bj

Thanks Barbara and Marie! It's fun learning new things. I'm so slow but that's OK. Both my sister and I love color so I can't wait to use other colors in this type of block.
