fair and square finish

 I had this quilt on the maybe someday list until 2017, when, I decided to really make it. I started the string piecing, off and on, until, I finished the blocks in 2019.  Next, I spent some time making little 4 patches. It is all made with recycled shirt fabric, except the black. I love shirt fabric. It is vibrant and cozy.

The quilt became part of the 5 quilts project in 2022  I don't remember why it was not quilted then, but, instead visited the to be quilted closet, until, now.

Now it is finished - hooray- I chose this as my one monthly goal for October.

82 x 104 = 25 yards
