Twinklers, all set
The Twinkler blocks were on the design wall for a week and a half. I knew that if I took them down they’d be consigned to the box o’ blocks, not to see the light of day for months. I contemplated an on-point setting but rejected it because
a. I wanted to use as many of the 46 blocks as I could,
b. 9″ blocks on point = 13.5″ (big!),
c. On-point would require setting triangles. I didn’t have enough of any one black-on-black, nor do I have enough of a variety of black-on-black (for scrappy).
Instead I used a straight setting. I like the sparkly shoo-flies created by the cornerstones in the sashing. [Would a non-quilter be able to understand the jargon in that sentence?!] The bright-stars-on-black border is cut from an 8-yard piece in my backings stash. The flimsy is 72 x 82. The setting used 1-3/4 yards. A good start for December!
