Back to work

Mom loved my Hunter’s Star blocks so much she was debating whether she wanted to make a bed quilt for herself … I decided to make it easy for her and offered her my blocks and help getting the rest of the blocks made before she leaves. We made a start today after our company and Keith left … I cut and arranged the fabric for the additional blocks and then we started sewing.

The quilt needs to be 96 inches square so we’re going to have 25 blocks – set 5×5 – and then a number of borders … including a wide 12 inch border to finish it off with cornerstone Star blocks from the same green fabric hanging on the side of the design wall. All this means that we needed to make an additional 17 blocks and we got 5 done this afternoon. I also loaded her last little top on the longarm to quilt later this week.

  3. Such a pretty quilt. I really should buy more solids but I always seem to go for prints… not to mention that I’m trying not to buy any more fabric at all!
