The Rainbow Continues - Roosting Robin Update

>> Thursday, July 9, 2015

It fits! After laying out my sewn together friendship stars for the side border I realized I needed 7 stars not 6 for the side. Makes sense. The sides are supposed to be longer as I try to make this quilt rectangular!

Spurred on by my success {grin} I set to work picking out the fabrics for the 4th border. This one will be reds as you can see from the top photo. I even cut my spacer rows and the pieces for the final corner block which is Penny Arcade by Pat Sloan, part of her free Vacation Time pattern.
The small, quartered stars are from Michelle at the Quilting Gallery. It was serendipity that they both released these blocks when the next row came out for this quilt requiring friendship stars.

Now I need to look ahead to see what the next row is so I don't let this quilt sit too long! I find the longer I wait to start the next step the longer I take to get back to it. Sound familiar?

Linking up to The Needle and Thread Network - it's their 200th WIP Wednesday!

With Joy,

I love the scrappy patchwork feel of you Roosting Robin! I will go backwards in time on your blog to see pattern. Did you design it yourself?
