Top of Siggies

Oh dear, I had a couple of oopsies with this top .... one I can easily fix (it is the top border), but the other one is a signature block, which is upside down and not easy to fix. So, it will stay and it will become my humble block.

By the time this top is finished, it will be a good twin size and perfect for taking a snooze under on the sofa.

The checkered border had to have a wee bit of coaxing to fit. So, now I just have to add some more borders to the other sides.

Two more blocks are needed for the borders. I have now made one and the other one is coming from a lady that was in the second group. As soon as that block arrives, the borders can be finished.

For any of you in the second group, you may have enough blocks to make a smaller lap quilt following this same layout. You would need to increase your sashings to 2-3/4" x 6" (cut 3-1/4" x 6-1/2"). If any of you are interested in border sizes, etc., please let me know and I will work that out for you.

Have a great day!

The addition of the checkerboard borders is a pleasant surprise and looks well with the quilt.
About the upside down signature block. That is one you can read when you are laying down and covered up with the quilt.

Your Siggie Quilt is very nice. I will have to think about piecing my siggies pretty soon, for I have collected 137 already.

This is such an interesting and cool arrangement of the blocks! Mine are still stacked to be someday made into a quilt. As usual, I'm lagging way behind.
