2000 squares of fabric - Done! Almost.
|2000 1-inch squares|
I need to add the border.
My original was featured in QUILT magazine along with a graphed pattern. And it was part of a special exhibit of the Y2K quilts at the Houston Quilt show in 1999. You can read about that exhibit here.
|Spring 2001 Issue|
I still have squares left over. And Jean in Mill Bay can look for a packet of 950 squares in the mail to make her own Y2K quilt. As she mentioned in an email to me, she considers this a "masochistic plan". lol.
|Vintage Singer Model 15-91|
In the meantime, I'm cleaning up my cutting table...I have a huge pile of "leavings" after cutting 2000 squares down to size. I cut at 1.25" and used 1/8 inch seams. It was easy to do as my vintage Singer 15-91 has a 1/8 inch pressure foot. Perfect!
