Last week I did manage to finish two tops before a busy weekend with my mother and her friend visiting.
The first is Spring Dawn, which needs a border. These are blocks that I sewed from another pattern, then added to them some fusible hand blanket stitch applique….and in the end, challenged myself to make a top with just the pieces I had sewn and appliqued. I’m pretty happy with it. The border will be the dark fabric on the right side of the pic.
The second is Ring of Stars, by Nancy Rink. I made this a bit smaller, so its 68″ square. Interesting pattern, as the star points are in the sashing. Its designed without a border, which is a nice change and suits the design.
