The rub is that all the sewing hasn't yet made an impact on the state of the design wall, but you can tell there was a lot of progress based on what's pinned and waiting to be stitched at the sewing machine.
That's the beginnings of 6 Twinkle Star blocks, this month's one monthly goal. After making the decision to not sash the quilt, it needs 18 more blocks to be large enough for the intended recipient. To decide what colors to use in the blocks, I played around with the layout on the design wall.
The Scientist in Training wanted it laid out with the colors grouped. So after playing around a bit, this is what I decided on. So I need 3 more red, 2 purple, 10 more blue, 2 more teal and 1 more orange. I'll get serious about where each block goes once all the blocks are finished. I'm hoping to have all new blocks finished this month. Then this project will probably go back into it's project box till next year.
There was a bit of progress on the Inverted Star project too. The first round of white borders are on, but since Twinkle Stars is up on the design wall, I don't have any pictures of that. The gray sawtooth stars for the next border are all finished.
All that's left is the 5 brown stars and 3 or 4 more various color stars to have enough for the next border. My plan is to lay out the blocks for the border and then decide what additional colors are needed to fill in. I'm really hoping to get this project done by October so it can go to Trudy for quilting as it needs to be finished by Christmas.
Linking up with the usual Monday linky parties.
