|extra 4 patch blocks|
Despite this detour, I was able to complete my Delightful Stars quilt today. I omitted the last two borders. One was a pieced border and then a four inch border of the background fabric. I have one half yard of background left. Not even close to what I needed. I know I could have tried to match but decided against that. It is what it is, and it is finished (except for the quilting). I really like Michele Foster's process for the borders. I used the measurements she provided and pinned from the center out. Everything came together. Oh yeah!

Another decision is what to do with all those left over four patches. I am thinking about some oversize pillows. There are probably enough left for another quilt. I will just wait till inspiration strikes.
Other news: I am still waiting for my border fabric for the Jump quilt, so that quilt is in a holding pattern. The small lap quilt for my daughter is on hold too. The backing fabric is in the same shipment.
I have promised my sister's grandson a quilt. I think that will be my next project....So many quilts I want to make. Thanks for checking in. Have a great week.
