It's all one

One big top, that is.
Got all the twinklies sewn together today.  (Woohoo!)


And pulled a green that is close to what my daughter and I discussed for the border (it's her quilt, remember) and mocked up a mockup.


That photo was before I had all the blocks together (I couldn't wait...) and the one below, mocked up after the top was assembled, is a view of how the corner will look.
 

We're now just dithering about which of several green fabrics we like.  I may end up ordering a couple and seeing how they look in person.

After I got Big Twinkle all joined up, I needed something small to decompress, so I grabbed my notes and worked on a February block for the 365 Challenge.  (I'd gotten a bit behind the last few days, what with the big push to twinkle.)
I got it done, with no more swearing than you'd expect.  But I really had to check the website when I got home, to make sure I didn't make a mistake.


Because, seriously?  A block this complicated should be this small?


And the next one's even worse...

(This is my idea of fun, folks.  Glutton, meet punishment...)

Oh my those pieces are tiny! But I love the block. Your quilt top is overly. I have been thinking on colors for mine.

I like the green border. I like tiny blocks, but some are too complicated for making so small. Think of how you are going to quilt this! Nothing but seams - been there, done that.

What a gorgeous top and a very lucky daughter! :)

Well, rats! I was going to put in a bid for that quilt. I like the way the green pulls out the green in the sashing.

Whoohoo!! Way to go Gayle!! I think the green is very nice. Good luck with the auditions. I am running behind with the 365 blocks but I keep downloading them. I haven't made any in Feb yet. Yours is so cute! It's tempting me into sewing some up.

Big Twinkle is gorgeous!

Big Twinkle looks great with the green! That is a tiny block for so many pieces, but that tiny precision piecing is something that I have done often - with Dear Jane, etc. I really like them too. I think the fact that they are smaller is what makes them so intriguing.

Ha! You went with some green, just like I suggested a minute ago on your last post!
