Making the Twinkling Stars blocks is so much fun that I couldn’t resist putting 5 of them together in a 9-patch. This is the beginning of the quilt. At this rate, I may have it done before the World Series is over. The 9-patch blocks finish at 15″. I’m hand piecing it so far, but will probably add the sashing elements using the machine.
I spent a fair bit of time on the weekend printing shapes for a few quilts, including the rest of the pieces needed for Twinkling Stars. So far there are 20 of the little star blocks finished. All that’s left to do to have everything prepared for the quilt is to cut some white strips for the sashing units I’m going to use in between the 9-patch blocks.
The weather has been wonderfully mild for so late in September. Today we’re supposed to have a humidex reading of 29C. If the forecast is right though, we’ll have a high of only 9C on Friday. Big change, but typical of fall weather. I’m hoping we get a true Indian Summer in October.
Baxter seems to grow overnight. It was only a few days ago that he barely filled half his kitty bed. Now look at him!
He looks so angelic in this shot I couldn’t resist posting it.
