Getting the pieced borders on Twinkle Stars has proved more difficult than I anticipated. The left border had to be taken off and the sections re-stitched with narrower seams to match the seams in the top. There were a few places where there were obvious pleats in the top. Letting out the seams eliminated the pleats. I started with narrower seams on the right and top borders, adjusting them as necessary when pinning the borders on. It was a slow process, but the borders will lay flat.

The bottom border isn't completely sewn together yet, but it's close. Getting this quilt to the finished flimsy stage is the one monthly goal for November. Hopefully the final, plain white border won't take as long as the pieced border did to finish off.
The 2019 Christmas Mystery Quilt is up on the small design wall.

The mittens block was finished about 30 minutes before class on Saturday. The last clue, along with the final layout, was given at the class on Saturday. I've picked out the sashing fabric, and the two border fabrics.
The dark green with the gold stars is the sashing fabric, the white with the red and green stars is the small inner border and the red and gold stars is the outer border. The finished flimsy is due at class next Saturday. Not sure I'll get that far, but I'll try.
So that covers what's up on both design walls. You can see what else in the works by checking out the Monday Making and Monday Design Wall linky parties.
