QUILTERS MADDER

Today is the link party for the Quilters Madder SAL (sew-a-long) organized by Lori at Humble Quilts.

I have all my blocks placed on my design wall, but not sewn together yet.  I hope to get it finished next week when I will have a little more time.  I'm not sure if I will add the HST border or not.  

Quilters Madder
In case you are wondering, "madder" is a reddish brown color of fabric that was popular in the civil war era - maybe - I'm not exactly sure.  I know it has something to do with dying fabric red.

Looks good, Ruth!
I put the border around all four sides on mine--not sure why.
(BTW, Wasn't that a great final World Series game?) : )

It looks very nice with the HSTs border, in my humble opinion. Love the fabric you used. Very well done. Hope you finish it soon. ;^)

Your little quilt is looking really good. This pattern required good color placement to be effective and you achieved it perfectly

You are one busy little quilter! Great fabrics! Can't wait to see your other projects you've been creating!

Blessings and hugs!

Very pretty blocks! I've been thinking again about my Civil War fabrics; I really need to use them. You may not believe this, but right now I'm wanting to work with them more than Christmas fabrics. Just can't seem to get into either one really right now. I do enjoy seeing yours! ---"Love"

Ruth, your blocks look wonderful and i really do love the look of the HST border. I was in two minds about doing the same and decided to leave it plain like Lori's.. less work too :))

I love the blocks! I saw the other post with the pile of them, but this setting is great. But I'm not sure about the HST border. Maybe they need to have the other side out? Or a skinny border between them and the blocks? I'm sure you'll do what you like best (and sometimes photos don't do a good job of showing things), but I worry they take away from the actual blocks.
