The One Monthly Goal for August was to get the Twinkle Star blocks up on the design wall to establish the final layout and to get all the sashing strips cut. I was showing My Guy and the SIT my plans for the quilt, neither liked the EQ version with the sashing, both liked it much better without. Then, the SIT asked me if the quilt was going to be big enough for her friend's bed (Twinkle Stars is another college graduation gift). It's not. So could I make more blocks? Yes. Let's do that. So now the plan is to put all the blocks up on the design wall and decide what colors to add. I mistakenly thought this quilt was ready for assembly. Thankfully, this friend isn't graduating for a couple of years.
So what did get done this weekend? The binding is sewn on to the front of the Magnolia Mystery quilt.
So I'll have some hand stitching to do the next week or so. That's good as I'll be struggling to find my 15 minutes each night to sew. Handwork is much easier to squeeze in.
The Inverted Star blocks are all stitched together.
The strips for the first border have been cut, next step is to get them sewn on. Inverted Star needs to be finished this year. It's a college graduation gift that needs to be done by December.
In addition to getting the center all sewn together, the black sawtooth stars for the border are also finished.
The gray stars are in various stages of assembly at the sewing machine and I've just started cutting the pieces for the brown stars. So this project is still moving right along.
