This year she opted for an on-campus four bedroom apartment shared with three of her friends. Her bedroom is a nice size, a great improvement over the closet she lived in over the summer. They have a nice sized living/dining room, but the kitchen is pretty tiny. Only two of them have moved in so far (both have on campus jobs, so had to move in early). The last two will not move in till Wednesday. Moving in early was nice, we missed all the madness of no parking places, crazy busy traffic and packed resturants.
When we got home late Sunday afternoon, I wandered into the sewing room. I hadn't really been in there since the previous Sunday. So where was I? This is what was laying by the sewing machine.
The gray pieces are Sawtooth Stars for the Inverted Star border. The orange strips and HSTs are the beginnings of this month's Squared Away blocks. The red and black almost 9 patches are the centers for the On Ringo Lake blocks (the current leader and enders project). The wider white strips are for the first border around the Inverted Star Blocks. Before I left the sewing room all the various pieces are were pinned and are ready for a good sit down session at the machine.
Since Twinkle Stars is this month's One Monthly Goal and it's almost the middle of the month, it was time to get those blocks out and back up on the design wall to figure out what's next. I had planned to sash these blocks, but both My Guy and the SIT liked it better without sashing. Plus the SIT wanted to see how the blocks looked laid out in rainbow order. So I gave that a try and ended up with this.

This works out nicely. The only problem is that without the sashing the quilt is a bit small for the intended purpose. So the plan is to add another row and column of blocks. So I need another 17 blocks before setting this one together. The Twinkle Stars is another college graduation quilt, but I've got a couple of years before it needs to be finished. Plenty of time (famous last words).
That's it for me this week. Linking up with the usual Monday morning linky parties.
