I have completed my two large blocks, except for the edging, and I am working on one small one that we will use for the label on the back of the quilt.
The small one (that will be the label) I am edging in black stitch. However the large blocks will be laid on top of another plain piece of fabric and a satin stitch used to complete the edging. Then the remainder of the top linen block will be cut away. It is necessary because some of the blocks don't have enough for a seam allowance.
