The Never Ending Border Blocks

We had a quiet weekend.  Our 29th wedding anniversary was on Sunday, so we started our weekend with a nice dinner out on Friday. We attended a memorial for a good friend on Saturday.  A trip out for frozen custard ice cream capped our anniversary celebration on Sunday.  

Even with the celebrations, I did get in a good bit of stitching time over the weekend.  Border #3, Step 7 was finished and added to Unity. 


 Unity, 2020 Bonnie Hunter Sew-In-Place Quilt Along

Just 9 more star blocks and I'll finally be finished with Step 7. I've been making the HSTs needed for these blocks since December of 2020.  That will leave just the step 8 top and bottom borders to complete.  I'm ready to move on to a new block, even though it also has HSTs. 

Linking up with Monday Making and Design Wall Monday

Oh boy…won’t that be great to move on to something else. I’ve had a few projects like that. It’s looking great.

Happy Anniversary! What a gorgeous quilt, and I'm sure you are ready for a new block. HSTs are not my favorite thing, but they sure make pretty blocks!

Happy anniversary! Unity is looking good - and you will have such a big feeling of accomplishment when you do finish it. Lots of work, but so worth it.

I sometimes think that Bonnie could also be known as aka HST. I did my unity quilt in red white blue and yellow. Ended up with 3 quilts from her one giant sized quilt. Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary! Glad you got to celebrate it out.
The endless HSTs sure look good in all the borders you've made so far :)

Hi Kate,l
Happy Anniversary! It makes me happy to read about other enduring marriages. Forever marriage is a beautiful thing. Your quilt is amazing - I wonder how many separate pieces of fabric are in it? Probably one of Bonnie Hunter's followers will have counted them, right? Looking forward to seeing it completed, Judy
