another quilt top finished

Another one that was super easy and pretty quick. This one maybe took an hour or one and a half hours to complete. This one uses 3 1/2 by 6 1/2 inch squares and is called Daddy Did It! It is pretty important to get the 1/4 inch seams because otherwise the block won't come out square and then the whole rows will be off. This one doesn't have a border, but I'm thinking of putting a border around it because when I load it to quilt, it will stretch all of the side seams. Plus, it will make it a little bigger.
I like this one and think it will make a good leader-ender project. I plan to cut more of my 3 1/2 inch strips into blocks and have a pile sitting by the machine ready to sew together when I need a mindless project or when I'm working on another project and need a quick break inbetween longer seams.
Next up...Twistin' Round the Rails. After running some errands.

I love your simple quilts! It is motivating me to get out one of the gazillion books I already own and make something from the book.
