Handprint Quilt Progress

As time is of the essence, I wanted to get started with the hand print blocks as soon as the paint dried.

First I cut each handprint into a square or rectangle 9.5" or less. 

Then I cut strips of varying widths of the different fabrics I had.  With them I started making up the difference so that each block would be 12.5" square. I wanted to have some striped borders also and sewed many strips together, then cut them into 2" wide strips. 

I'm using the back of a tablecloth as a design board. It's perfect.
