Things are finally starting to settle down again. I decided on this sashing solution for the Carpenter's Star blocks. It uses up some of the extra HST and extends the pattern to help the blocks join. I am starting to see a nice secondary diamond where all of the blocks come together. It also will make the quilt slightly larger, which is a bonus. Given the block size, it is harder to get things to fit. With smaller blocks it is easy to add an extra row or two, but these stars are giant! There should be time today to finish the rest. I have a few housekeeping things to do and a couple of work tasks to catch up on, but generally things are settling down again to a more normal level. The post hurricane craziness has settled. How are your scraps coming together? I must admit to being completely out of contact with the world lately. I look forward to catching up on that today as well.
