To answer a few questions, the “medallion” center of the rescue quilt is currently 53″ x 61″. The goal is a full-size or larger quilt, or at least 78″x87″, but preferably more like 84″ x 92″. There is a long ways to go.
All that remained of the original work was 5 pieced strips like this.
They were about 12-15 inches wide and 40-48 inches long. Some sections were more usable than others, but, as before, I wanted to use as much as I could.
I thought the best use might be to cut them into blocks and add white borders, similar to the center of the quilt.
The pieced blocks started at 8″ and the white strips are 2″. So, now I have ten (make that 12) 11″ blocks. Somehow that needs to be the heart of the next layer of borders. Hmmm…
