Getting There

This General Jack quilt is taking much longer than I had anticipated. The pieces have been sewn into blocks or sections. Just can't seem to get them all into a top form. This is the center section.

Here's one problem I have been having with getting the little stars sewn into border form.

He's very persistent! When he wants attention, he means NOW! Notice he is sticking his tongue out at me. Well, actually, he was in the middle of a bath.

This is sort of what the quilt will look like one of these days. There are a couple of borders in between the center section and the star borders. If Jasper cooperates, I may get this one together yet.

More Little Stars

Still working with those 1 1/2" half square triangle units in order to make my little stars. Getting really close now. I think I only need three or four more.

These finish at four inches and there are forty of them that create the borders for this quilt.

Retreat Week-end

This is where I spent the first week-end of 2015! We had a wonderful time and sewed hundreds of half square triangle units for our General Jack quilts. There were17 in our group. Meals are divided up between us. We eat very well and are responsible for just one meal.

This is my progress so far. The corners will have a star within a star block and then it will have a border of little star blocks. HSTs are done and will become stars soon.

Happy New Year everyone!
