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!
I love the shoo flies created with those little cornerstones, too … and I cannot believe how quickly you put together your October blocks.
Very, very pretty! I’m inspired to drag out Mt bright scraps and go to town. Thanks for sharing.
Ooooh, I wish I could see a close-up! That looks beautiful.
What a gorgeous quilt you’ve made!
I love the setting you chose. Those little shoo-flies are so cute! Great job getting it to the flimsy stage!!! And so fast! Well done!
Nann, you have sewn a wonderful creation here! It is beautiful!
It’s a stunner!! So glad you won.
What a beautiful quilt! I didn’t win the Twinkler blocks but liked the block so well I made enough for a wall hanging/quilt. Could I use your idea for the shoo flies in my quilt? They just set the blocks off wonderfully. Great job, Nann
