Progress on Laurel Burch Quilt

As usual, when I don’t really have a full plan but get the urge to start another quilt, time marches on while I’m staring at blocks on my design wall.  I finally made a little progress with my square in square (AKA Economy Block) quilt using my Laurel Burch fabric.  This might not look like much progress, but here’s what I’ve done so far:

I think I’m going to add another pieced border all around then another solid or small print around that before staring at it again.  I just have to decide what kind of pieced pattern I want to use.  At this point it measures 31″ x 31″ square.  I haven’t decided how big I really want to go with this.

I apologize to my daughter in Alaska for whom I have a quilt top all finished, but I’ve neglected to try to complete the whole quilt because I’m distracted with this project.  Maybe while I’m in my staring mode I should just finish that other quilt!

Hopefully more to come on this one sooner rather than later.  Suggestions are welcome!

    I really like what you’ve done so far. The size at 31″ (finished, I assume) makes piecing a little more complicated. You could make a 5″ wide border using 5 5″ blocks separated by 6 1″ spacers. Like this:
    The corner blocks would just be 5″ squares then. That would take the size to 41″. You could just use the great motif squares and frame them to that size.
    Do you have enough of the green to make it your final border?

    Sorry! Not meaning to take over here. I’m just brainstorming! 🙂

    Anyway, I think it looks great and so much fun. Good job. I’ll look forward to seeing the next step.

      I do have more of the green and if I don’t have enough I believe it’s still in stock at the quilt shop. I really like that color as well. You’ve definitely got my wheels turning so I need to run up to my sewing room and start playing, LOL.
