A mini sewing marathon. That’s what was going on here this weekend.
And here is the result of the mini sewing marathon. Candy Stars is all but finished – the piecing of it, that is. All that’s left is to add the final red octagons and diamonds around the edges. It will finish at 20″ x 26″. I was determined to get it to this stage, and I did.
I am so glad I graded the seams as I went. It would be rather daunting to be faced with grading all those seams at once. If my calculations are right, there are 932 pieces in this little quilt. Once the final bits are added and those final few seams graded, it will be finished. A quick final press and then it will be time to baste, quilt and bind it.

The look on his face in this photo makes me laugh. He is really enjoying spending time in his kitty tree right now as there are many, many birds to watch.
