Stars Around the Garden – 2020-2022!

Shock and Awe. Stars Around the Garden is ALMOST finished as a quilt top! Yesterday I finished putting the sashings on and I am so pleased with it. Now on to the pieced border – all 318 of the 3 1/2” squares. I will now have to play ”auditioning the colors” and how I will put them together to make up the 9 1/2” borders.

This is the last of the quilts that I started prior to 2022 and it has been waiting in the wings to be finished. I am sure that I will be sending this one to Tammy my longarm quilter this year. It feels good to get this one to this point. I kept it for the last of the UFOs because I knew that there could not be any errors in putting the top together!!! The sashings are a beautiful emerald dark green that really brings all the colors together!

The only other project started and not completed is Celebrating Mary Brown. It is a needle turn applique reproduction quilt and a very large one. I have completed 16 blocks (corner blocks) and the decision is whether or not to continue with it or just put the 16 blocks together for a wall hanging. Maybe when I finish the border for Stars… I will review the pattern and decide if I want to continue and also start a new applique project!

Now it is time to get busy with the border. Have a wonderful week and enjoy stitching or any other hobby that you love. My calendar is free until 5 May – YIPPEE!

Hugs, Nanette

    1. Thank you so much Gretchen. I think the border will look good too. I had forgotten that you had made 2 of the quilts and to have the first one go for $3K was a wonderful a testment to your work!


  1. Both of your quilts are just wonderful. Love the colors of your Stars Around the Garden. So glad you are able to get it to this stage. And your applique is just amazing as well. I love hand work and can tell you do as well. Such a decision to finish as is or keep going. I can appreciate the debate and see both sides. Whatever you decide will be pretty!


  2. Love the Mary Brown blocks you have completed thus far! Whatever you decide to do, you’ll still look at the finished quilt with a big smile on your face!
