I finally finished the top of my QM Bitty Blocks. It's still longer and skinnier than I wanted, but it's okay. It now measures 56 X 89. I struggled with border ideas and finally just used the same black mini dot fabric that is used in the sashing. I will bind it with a scrappy multi color binding.

I also pieced a backing for Fair and Square I posted last week. I had LOTS of strips left over and they were all sewn end to end as that is how the quilt was made. I started sewing them together like the jelly roll race quilt (aka 1600) and then decided I should really have a plan and see how much I needed. I have only scraps leftover! The blue was in my stash but needed to be bigger.

Now I need to make the backing for my Fire Island Hosta.
