I grabbed the bin of my sadly neglected Centennial stars, and got right to
Check out the star points in that block in the lower right corner of the picture. I could only squeak out seven triangles from my orange pindot scrap, so I rummaged through my pile of scrap triangles for an eighth one. Luckily I found an orange polka dot scrap that would work perfectly as long as I wasn't picky about dot sizes. Win!
I made a sixteenth Burgoyne Surrounded block, but apparently forgot to photograph it. It's the blue-centered one being cut off at lower left -
and then I whipped up a couple of quick nine patches and tested out the 3" sashing version of BS. I like it better than the narrow sashing, which is going to result in a much larger quilt. (Fifteen inch blocks with three inch sashing is going to be honkin' huge.) This means I might as well stop making more blocks. Or start another BS quilt. Whichever.
Proceeding from large to small, I next turned my attention to my Monday Maniacal Minis. (Was that the name of it?) I counted up my little blocks and what with the extras I'd made (because my math skills don't seem to include counting), came up with twenty-three. There's no sensible layout I could think of that used 23 blocks, so my choices were to discard three blocks for a count of twenty (like in the Temecula pattern) or to forge ahead and make two more blocks for a total of 25.
A couple of framed square-in-squares gave me the desired total, and I started sashing these itty bitties.
Cue the dithering for the second sashing color.
What's that last fabric again?
I found a backing for Are We There Yet. I love these big multicolor circles sooooo much!
(And my Monday Minis are currently in timeout while they think about their total lack of cooperation in sashing choice. I'll get back to them when their attitude is a little better.)
