Liberated Squares On Point
I made my wonky squares on point with the directions in Liberated Quiltmaking II by Gwen Marston. It's an easy and fun technique which uses scissors-cut squares (not quite square) and triangles.
I like my Round 2 borders. When it came to the corner squares, I wanted to introduce gold in case I wanted to use gold later in the quilt. I tried out different gold scraps and chose one I liked, then stitched it all together--and now I think the gold looks weird. Like it's saying: "What am I doing here"? Maybe the gold could have been introduced earlier as a very narrow border near the brown circly print border.
Or maybe I'll want to introduce olive green in Round 3! I'll have to wait and see what Nancy and June have for us next. I'll probably separate Round 2 and 3 with a plain border to set off the patchwork borders. The quilt is now 33" x 33".
