Square Dance Quilt

This morning I have been playing with my hand dyed fabrics. I decided to make the Square Dance Quilt, brushing up on the method ready to teach it. It took me ages to choose the fabrics, I get so attached to them and hate cutting into them... silly really, as I can always dye more!
Eventually, I sorted this little hic-cup and cut the 25x 6" squares. This is them sewn together, complete with border.

You have to cut round a template on an angle to get this effect. This is all the pieces put together ready to sew. I think is very clever how the blocks also form a border. I am working on another pieced border.
Enough sewing for now, it's time to walk Molly... while the sun is shining.
