Star Light Star Dark
I've made progress piecing my Star Light Star Dark quilt, and I can't wait to finish up! I showed off my big stars in my last post. Here they are with my small stars. I'm holding off on showing my other fabrics in favor of the big quilt top reveal when I get it all pieced together. :-) This project has been so quick and easy. Now to start thinking about how I want to quilt it. See others' progress on Instagram. There are so many beautiful versions in progress.
Quilting with the Kiddos
My kids continue to make slow progress on their projects, but mostly I had to help my daughter do her next two line of quilting so I'd have enough pins to baste my 58" x 83" secret project!
I was out of town on a family vacation last weekend. Since it was a relaxy, hang out in the vacation house kind of trip, I finally got my act together to pack along my La Passacaglia project to start basting and piecing. I'm happy with the progress I made, but I'll have to make an effort to work on it. I figure by the end of the first rosette I'll know if I'm hooked for the long haul or if rosette #1 is destined to stand alone as a mini quilt or on a bag. Right now it feel like magical bonus sewing, since it was done at a time I couldn't have been machine piecing. At home, I might work on it while watching TV in the evenings with my husband, and I intend to tote it around to work on when I find myself with a few minutes waiting for school pickup time and such. Here are the first ten (of 90) pieces in rosette #1.
I finished up my August bee blocks. They'll be mailed next week once the kids are in school and I can go to the post office alone. ;-)
Mostly this week, I've been working on cranking out a finish that I can't quite show off yet. Come back tomorrow for a full reveal.
