radiant star progress

I had an open sew Saturday with the guild.  I needed a piecing project to take with me, since I mistakenly thought twisted braid( number 2) would not take the whole day. Circa is number one on the 5 quilt list. It is big and needs borders. I did not want to carry that. I opened radiant star ( number 3). It needed borders, too, but, is small enough to carry with me. I pressed it, ate a piece of candy for bravery, and, then, trimmed the edges. I really dread that step. One mistake, and the whole thing blows up. Luckily, it was fine, and I was able to add two borders, easily. I took this quilt as a class at a LQS in 2012.

it will be about 50 x50


Another Ufo ready to quilt

I took another project to cut. And I worked on my twisted braid. It was not close to finishing, even after, I worked the afternoon on it.

  1. It always feel so good to move those UFO's along doesn't it! I have a free afternoon, perhaps I will get one of mine out and work on it:)

  5. Your quilt is beautiful. I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who has a hard time squaring something up! That is the scariest part of the whole quilt-making process for me.

  6. Radiant Star is beautiful! I'm so impressed that you didn't lose any star points when you added that first border. I always have that problem!
