Wednesday, Thursday and Friday hit me like a bus. Honest. I felt horrible. It’s the worst I’ve felt in a long time…it was definitely the worst I’ve felt throughout my whole ordeal. I thought I was ready for an upswing so it hit even harder. Thankfully I had a few blog posts already in place because I was not well at all. I ended up at the doctor twice over that time period. More on all of that in tomorrow’s post. Just know for now, I’m on the uptake. Sunday I finally started feeling like a person and not a bag of side effects. I am so thankful.
Anyway, I did VERY little over the weekend. Kayla came home and we hung out. She was helpful…cooking and taking care of me. Then Sunday Kalissa invited us over for supper. I finally felt better on Sunday….The “bus” of tired and crazy problems left and FINALLY the me and the me I love is coming back.
I did finish up my string blocks. I have the star blocks sewn together. I couldn’t find a good place to lay them out.
Try as might I couldn’t get Ruby to not sit on the blocks. She’s yet to learn that she only needs to sit on finished quilts. She thinks it’s her duty to sit on anything that’s on the floor. Silly dog.
I need some advice….Would you sew them all together as is?
Would you not sew them together and take the stars and make them into baby quilts?
I thought about sashing or something between the stars but then something gets lost as the neutral blocks come together.
Right now if I sew them together as is, in a 3 star by 3 star setting, as shown they will make a 90″ x 90″ quilt. My machine only lets me do 100″ x 100″ and that’s kind of hard so keep that in mind when you offer any advice….I need the quilt to stay under 100″ x 100″.
Borders…just binding?? What do you think readers? I’m at a loss. Originally I had it in mind to just sew the big stars together. Now I’m not sure.
I’ll happily read any advice…..
