I mostly made and finished this quilt top today, two of the blocks I made last night. I wish I could crop out the garbage can!
This top is about 60x72. All from stash nickels. The border is really an 80's blue with little pink roses on it. But I had enough, so I used that. There is a dent now in my nickels, I think I have used most of the ones I like. There are 192 nickels in this quilt. There is one hst I put in the wrong way, but by that time I was ok with that. Can you find it? Look at end of post for answer. Can you see the stars in this top? I think they don't really jump out very much. It kind of just looks like four-patches and square in a square.
I just packed up my stuff to go the quilt festival tomorrow. I am so excited! I am taking my older smaller machine, my 6500 won't fit in the carrier I have. All those little things you need, sewing machine needles, pins, seam ripper, etc. I think I got them all.
HST that is wrong: upper right corner third one to the left, top row.
