last pile....

of sew-along blocks now a (mostly) flimsy...still needing setting triangles, fabric yet to be chosen.  it has taken me all week along to get the last 2 rows done and put this together in between the tasks required for recuperation that are very slowly producing result.


only 2 blocks left over that'll go in the orphan pile.  when these were being made, didn't realize how many reds and blues got used but still a good mix of some of everything else--purple, gold, green, cheddar, poison yellow.   leaning toward cheddar for setting triangles as have enough on hand.   ***  making a herculean effort to dress and take in some spring-like temps this weekend and most of next week.  looks like february is a no-snow month and if we squeak thru march, it will have been a snowless winter start to finish....my family in maine are too busy digging out to even THINK of spring!  ***   linking up with "oh scrap" blog.....

  1. Enjoy your warm temps, we are looking to have a fairly warm week here too. Love all the colors in the star quilt.

  2. Looks wonderful! I have noticed that you appear to sew your diagonal rows together before adding the setting triangles. Does that make it tricky to add the triangles after that? Inquiring minds want to know.
    Sounds like you found the winter you wanted in your move southward. : )

  4. Oh my stars! This is beautiful! And, I guess I don't have to tell you how I feel about cheddar as a choice.

  6. That's a beautiful array of stars! Funny how we often don't notice the prevalence of a colour or pattern until we step back or look at a photo. It's going to be an amazing quilt!
