Slow Going

Cooler temperatures that match the time of year finally showed up this weekend.  So did the rain. It was a good weekend to stay home and spend some time in the sewing room. There was some good progress on a few things.  Vintage Dresses is all trimmed up and ready for binding.  Now I need to find a darker blue in the stash to use for the binding.  

Then there's been progress on the October Clue for the Mosaic Mystery quilt.

There are a few completed blocks, but those had been already put away in the project box when I remembered to get a photo.

The biggest effort as been to get the rows of Twinkle Star blocks sewn together into a finished flimsy.  There's been progress, but it's been slow going. 

Twinkle Stars
Tutorial by Andrea Feldbush of Soscrappy

The top and bottom 4 rows are sewn together.  The middle two rows are almost there. I hadn't decided on how to finish this project off. Leave it like it is or add a border or two?  After playing around in EQ a bit that's been worked out. 


 Completing the diamonds on the edges makes for a nice finish and then just a plain white border to float the blocks on.  Not sure on the binding color yet.  The pieced border won't be so bad, I've cut 6.5 x 2.5 rectangles and adding the corners to one side of those rather than making the border completely out of 2.5" squares. I'll need just 4 squares for the corners.  A lot fewer seams that way.  

I'm chipping away on my to do list for the month and that feels really good.  Hope your weekend was as productive. 

Linking up with the usual Monday linky parties.

I love your idea to finish the Twinkle stars quilt! I wasn't able to start sewing my square in a square units this weekend, but maybe tonight I can sneak a few in.

Your Twinkle Stars are just wonderful! I’m glad you had sewing time and hope October won’t actually be so crowded that you can’t sew a little each day.

Great idea to have the floating diamonds as the final border! That looks very finished and polished.

AnnieO said...

The completed diamonds are a very pleasing design--plus use up more fabric! Your matching points look very good.

Your twinkle stars are beautiful. I'm sure the finished top will be worth all the work.
