The Fat Quarters Stars Quiltalong, a 6-month project hosted by Konda at Moose on the Porch Quilts, has come to a wonderful finish. Each block was designed by a different person. You will see lots of gorgeous and stunning quilt tops and finished quilts featured on the group's Flickr page here.
But you won't see mine...yet! I sewed and I sewed and I sewed to try to make the deadline of March 27 for posting to the Flickr page. I didn't quite make it.
I did start on the right track. I filled my sewing table with my blocks and started to put the borders on.
I made the 12-block quilt with fabrics I had in my stash, using 4 main color families and a variety of cream fat quarters for the backgrounds. Konda made a wonderful suggestion to put a color-coordinated border around the blocks so this was my next step.
I arranged them on the floor side by side using green, gold, red, and blue as my sequence.
And then I looked at the clock and had run out of time. So what's next? I have to decide whether to sew the blocks together as is and add a few borders, or sash with cornerstones first and then border. Any suggestions?
Did you remember Thimbleberries Sew Day was yesterday? I remembered but I'm afraid I wasn't sewing. I was busy being a Regional Science Fair judge learning some amazing things from some very clever grade 4 students.
It's a little grey out there and continues to be pretty chilly. A perfect day for quilting!
