A week of ongoing design

Quilts of progress:

  • Stargazing quilt: five blocks remaining, 3/4 of cutting done (so. many. tiny. pieces.). The blocks are coming out about 12″ rather than 12.5″ and I can’t find why – guess that means I’ll have a finished size <36″ square of the pieced blocks, so it might have to have a border to make it a feasible lap quilt. Have picked out something new for the binding: a perfectly matching stripe!
  • Mystery Quilt: Lots of progress here! The centre panel with pieced blocks gets its last seam put in tonight. Then we have to add the three borders to bring the top up to its finished size. Lots of work with linen cotton blends – lovely stuff.
  • Stash Bee Feb block: Nearly done. I accidentally added one strip too many to this pineapple block in the wrong place; now unpicked, but not yet reattached.

No progress this week:

  • Arkansas Star quilt
  • Yellow-n-grey single wonky star micro-mug rug
  • Kingdom of coral mug rug (blocks have no seam allowances when joined! not sure why, but it rather dampened this one).

Brewing in the design phase:

  • Mystery mini quilt (but the design and fabric choices are now clear! One pieced border coming up…)
  • Saturn-as-seen-from-a-moon pieced panel for a laptop conference bag
  • Reverse applique observatory-and-sky vertical banner wall quilt
  • Phoenix mini quilt

Lots of playing with fabric. Soon: finishes!
