All the borders are on the Caramel Blues UFO, the backing fabrics are pressed and ready to piece, and the binding has been cut, sewn and pressed. I always like to make the binding in the middle of the project.
Blocks have begun to be assembled into rows for the Jewel Box quilt, but are not sewn together yet. These purple triangles coming together will be the "heart" I am so fond of putting in my quilts. Four rows to go!
Of course, moving stash around leads to playing with leftovers. Earlier this year I completed these pinwheel blocks from cutoffs from the Rick Rack Road quilt and want to set them with half square triangles in two colors that will form stripes. The 6x8 setting will require 24 HSTs that finish at 7" and if my MATH is correct, about 3/4 of a yard of each fabric is needed.
The purple-y blue is about 10 years old, the green a recent remnant bin find. I think they work but don't want them to overpower the pinwheels. Opinions?
More leftover HSTs from a baggie, these from the Bowtie quilt I made for a brother two years ago.
These will be squared to 1" before assembly. Sounds insane, right? I'm curious to see if I can tolerate sewing squares that tiny! It will be a micro-mini for sure.
