Stars for a New Day is a top

Just finished adding the last borders on measures 82" square decided not to add the last 1 3/4" strip as the binding will corral the top and I can fit this on my frame. Nothing else on the go except for the tisket basket and the last block will be released on the 5th. Ordered a quilt kit called Civil War Tribute it won't be here for probably 3 weeks.

Update on Stars for a New Day

Got all 72-4" sawtooth stars done now I need to make 24-6" assorted blocks, just needed a brake from the small pieces so bounced to Memory Lane.

Memory Lane is now a top

Memory Lane is a BOM from Block Central it calls for 2 borders but I decided to just do the one, so my size is 72" square the finished size on the original is 92" square my frame would not be able to handle it at that size, and it's pricy to send out to get quilted. Now I need to get the backing pieced, couldn't find anything in my stash right now.

12th finish for 2009

Used the 4" civil war squares I've been collecting for the back. This quilt is a real scrappy quilt.

It's a top

Reminisce is now a top it's only 60" square deciding if I should add a border it's kind of too scrappy for me.

Productive Day

Worked all day on Reminisce, I'm at the point of attaching the 2 borders of blocks and set-in triangles should be a top tomorrow if all goes well.

Still working on this top just finished all the flying geese, this one to me is too dark or too scrappy got to keep going or it will end up in the back of the cupboard, will post a pic of progress later.
