No longer UFOs, projects #8 and #9 are complete.
The smaller quilt is for the NICU. The top was already pieced when I brought it home from the guild. After noticing one block was going in the wrong direction, I took it apart and turned it around.
The 9-Patch kit is one I pieced several months ago. It is ready to be turned in for the Ronald McDonald House.
The corners on both of these quilts are rounded. Credit goes to Pat Harwell, who showed several charity quilts with rounded corners at the guild meeting earlier this week. She raved how easy it was to attach the bindings.
I make my kennel quilts with rounded corners. There is no binding on kennel quilts; but, the process goes so much faster when you do not have to square corners.
I decided to give rounded corners a try on these two quilts and it was easy-peasy. You should give it a try on your next quilt. I use the 3″ radius corner on Creative Grids Multi-Size Curved Corner Cutter. You might want to try a saucer to trim your corners.
