The last pieced border for Twinkling Stars was finished last night, but the baseball game was on and I didn’t want to be at the sewing machine attaching it to the quilt, so out came the 9-patch blocks to set on point. They’re now going to become a little quilt on their own rather than be incorporated into the Twinkling Stars quilt.
As the blocks are finished, they’ll be stored in a very special box from a friend. So far 13 of them are done. Once they’re all done, the quilt will be quick to stitch together. They finish at 4.24″. I think I’ll have about 100 of them by the time they’re all stitched.
There was some great feedback yesterday on working with flannels. I think I’m going to make a double 4-patch with the flannels. Once they’re washed and ironed I’ll get started. But today my plan is to attach the two borders to Twinkling Stars and hopefully get a good picture of it.
Baxter was posing in the pink chair after another busy day on the windowsill.
I know Molly had a busy day watching out for the squirrels and the chipmunks on Wednesday as well!!
Love the colour combination of the blocks…
Love the little blocks and the tin you’re keeping them in! A double four patch in flannels sounds wonderful, looking forward to seeing it…and twinkling stars!
I love those 9 patches! Setting them on point is too nice! Only 87 more to make, that doesn’t sound bad! 🙂
Sitting all day at the window and watches the leaves and birds, that’s a tough job but somebody has to do it!
those little 9 patches are going to make a beautiful quilt!
Your box matches your blocks! 🙂
This is going to be such a HAPPY quilt! loving it!
