Poor Nantucket has indeed been set aside in the tumult of Thanksgiving Week and Weekend, but truly I have been thinking about it.
Look, do you see? I even cleared my Antique Stars blocks off of the design wall in an effort to focus and get serious about finishing up Nantucket. Given a few uninterrupted hours, this quilt will be a done deal. The big center stars went together in no time, the little nine patch units were easy peasy, and sewing those borders will be a cinch.
Are you seeing stars? Lol. A friend got the idea from another friend, to add little 4 1/4 inch star blocks in the border for that sparkle effect we love. Not too many, just eight or nine--enough to make your eye travel around the quilt and seek them out. Love it.
I am going to dedicate myself. Yes, Dedicate Myself, to working on this quilt top Thursday and Friday and Saturday this week and see if I can't just finish it up and move on to the next project!
