I put two tops together yesterday from donated blocks. I had a stash of the border fabric which went nicely with the blocks. I'm getting ready to load these two on the longarm, using one continuous backing. I also have a sea turtles pantograph that will be just perfect for these quilts.
These will make great summer quilts for kids. I'm also using fleece throws for batting. I was a little over generous with my borders, and I'm thinking of machine basting the fleece to the top--it's going to be close, and I don't want to do too much pulling with the tensioners on the sides.
