I am sure that everyone is going to be happy when I finish this lovely intense project that I decided to take on in late June! I do know one thing, I am now enjoying (slowly) completing a border around each block in order for the stars to float and provide a professional quilter to have fabric to play with!
So here is where I am now! I wanted the Stars to float and did not want to do a sashing. So here is what the quilt will look like. Unless I make the blocks smaller, they will finish at 14 1/2” This is not the final placement of the blocks. I am putting them on the design wall as I finish them.
By adding the borders, the blocks measure 16 inches and then I am trimming them down to 15”. The border on each block differs from the original quilt, but I like the idea I came up with.
Our weather is like a Sauna today – rain for the next 2 or 3 days! No complaints here.
I am so behind on RSC blocks 8 and 9. I do hope I can finish them by next Friday so I can do a post on them and be ready for Block 10 (October). I am going not going to use the pattern for September as it is not appealing to me. I will come up with something – HEY how about a Lone Star Block (UGH). Just kidding!
I am going to work on quilting my Indian Summer
And, if I am in the applique mood, A Bountiful Life. I have 4 blocks that have been waiting quite awhile for some one to applique them! LOL Once I finish them I will 10 blocks completed! Then only 10 more to go! Hum!
Have a wonderful week-end and enjoy stitching!
