{Post 1,465} A Little With Side Triangles

Here is the little I put all together.  The bottom 2 right rows are all sewn together.  I am liking my brown fabric choice.

I probably won't have much more time to sew for the next few days, but I'm happy with this so far.

A friend brought over 2 quilt tops for me to machine quilt today, and I'm just trying to get this top off the design wall so I can work on her quilts.  Pressing on.  And I mean pressing!!

{Post 1,463} One More Block to Sew

Here's the little I got finished today.  Maybe I'll work on it more tonight?

{Post 1,462} A Few More Units On the Wall

75 minutes leter...if I have counted correctly, I have all the 9-patches finished, 3 more blocks to piece (all HSTs already pieced), and 6 more sashing strips to sew.  

{Post 1,461} A Little HST Star Progress

A few days ago I took this picture:

Then I had 32 people here for supper (a backwards meal...dessert, entree, appetizers, and drinks) on Tuesday.  While I recovered from all the cooking and cleaning, I pieced a few more sashings and 9-patches.  Here is where it is right this minute:

Since it is very close to being ready for borders, I don't want to take it down to pack up again.  This quilt top started when I found many HSTs of the same size in my stash(es).  As I wondered how to use them up, a "star" was born.

My design walls are 48" wide each, so this gives you an idea of how large it is so far.

I think I'll use the same cream fabric (or maybe surprise myself and pick a different color) for the setting triangles on the sides and corners.  Now that I've introduced that idea, I think a dark fabric would be splendid!!

I don't have to piece any more HSTs, so the rest of this is a snap.

{Post 1,460} Sorry About This Method

I need to contact Christine that likes my Red Zinger quilt top.  You emailed me before Christmas, and I can't find your email address.

For the rest of you, here's a bad photo of a wall decor item (7' x 4') that I made for a baby shower last night at our church...
