|One Step at a Time|
I made this quilt while teaching my first Mystery Class, in 1995 when mystery classes were very popular.
|Sawtooth Star and Square-in-a-Square Blocks|
I used two traditional blocks, Sawtooth Star and Square-in-a-Square and added four borders, with the second one being a sawtooth made up of half-square triangles.
|borders, binding and quilting|
Only four fabrics were used for this quilt, I very seldom make quilts using so few fabrics.
One of the fabric was a Jinny Beyer print and I was very disappointed to see it really faded when the other fabrics did not.
For the back, I stitched 5 panels of the 2 pink fabrics that was used on the front.

This quilt was a long time getting finished and longer still getting quilted and the reason why I name it One Step at a Time.
That's all for now.
