Another finish for 2015
The pattern is one of Eleanor Burns' from her book El's Kitchen. She calls it Pigtail and it's a variation of a traditional snail's trail block. Instead of the 4-patch center in the snail's trail, this block has a center square with 5 rounds of triangle sections.
Her instructions - as usual - were explicit and because they are sewn slightly over-sized and then squared up, the blocks are very accurate.
The gals at The Pin Cushion quilted it for me and I pulled leftover binding sections from my stash for the binding. And yes - I do have a small drawer full of left-over binding pieces just waiting for the right quilt. So basically my binding was free, and all ready to use after connecting the sections.
