The last two centres for the red and white Feathered Star/Sunflower blocks are done. Now it’s a matter of finishing the Feathered Star blocks themselves, adding them to those already done and starting on the borders.
I’m grading the seams as I go and have learned it’s a lot easier to grade the centre sunflower before it’s in the centre of a 20″ block. I wait until after pressing before grading the seams. Then it’s a quick press again and they’re done.
It snowed a fair bit last night but today it’s supposed to be quite mild again, so I suppose it will all be melted by noon. Last night was the first time this winter I would have possibly gone looking for boots had I been going out.
Baxter in what seems to be a chair meant for kitties. The cat I had as a little girl loved this chair, and so has every cat I’ve had since then. It seems to be just the right shape for them. It’s actually a very comfortable chair in which to sit but, as it’s usually occupied by a cat, we don’t seem to get the chance!
Cats always know which is the best seat in the house! I like your Feathered Sunflowers, they are coming along very nicely.
I wonder, do you sleep, how do you get so many squares completed. I love that you show the pieces flipped and pressed.
got too much here to have it all melt today…….which sucks
Molly seems to think the sofa is her personal chair as well………I don’t think so!!
How exciting, almost done with this one! I am patiently waiting to see this one in all it’s glory!
Cats know how to seek out the most comfortable place in the house and then they claim to own it!
No snow here, 70 degrees yesterday and a bit cooler today but still in the 50’s. Now spring birds are showing up, hope they don’t regret it!
Our winter has been similar. I bought new boots last year and wore them quite a bit then. I’ve only worn them once this year. I guess that means they will last for many winters.
Isn’t bold red/white striking! One forgets how lovely simply two-tones can be. Just lovely piecing…looks grand as is…will be dazzling when done I’m sure! How dear, a special chair filled with lovely memories…and now purring kitties! Life is good!
Hugs and happy stitching!
Love the last two centres, this quilt is going to be another stunner! And Baxter definitely has the life of Riley!
This quilt is going to be incredible! One question – I’ve never heard about “grading.” What exactly does that mean?
