Progress so far this week...

I started making stars for the December assignment of "Granny Went Star Crazy".  We don't have the instructions out yet, but I'm sewing them up anyway because Dec is always CRAZY.

I quilted on Dorinda for 2 hours this morning.  I had just rolled previous to this, so what you see is what I accomplished in 2 hours.  I am into the last set of blocks and all that will be left is the final border.
There are a MILLION seams in this section, so don't look too close at my stitches in those areas.  It's the best it can be.

I am beginning to attach my half blocks to the outside of the quilt.  I did this different from the pattern in that I changed the background fabric to a rust color to create sort of a border.  I think I like it.

Wow, your Dorinda quilt is really coming along. Your quilting looks great. I will be very happy for both of us when we get those quilts finished. I really love your Star Crazy quilt. I like the way you used the darker fabric around the blocks. It's going to be a great quilt.

I love your Dorinda quilt. You are doing a marvelous job. Those blocks really do have a lot of seams.
I love the rust color of your Star Crazy quilt. It really sets it off.
