WIP Wednesday: Red Star Quilt
I am linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
The quilt(s) I have been working on pretty much exclusively this week are the Red Star Quilt for my boss and my Christmas quilt.
Since I've shared plenty of Christmas quilt pictures, and haven't taken any recently, I'll just stick to the Red Star Quilt.
So this is going to be a lap sized quilt, about 60x60" made of 25 basketweave star blocks. I am making 24 red stars and 1 blue star.
I have a super tight deadline. I am hoping to have it completely finished by the Monday before Thanksgiving since my boss will be having knee replacement surgery the week after Thanksgiving, and I'll be in Michigan until she's out. My guild mates were amazing and helped me out with a ton of red scraps that I used up completely.
I have a red and white stripe fabric for the binding that I'm really excited about as well, since I've never done stripey binding and love the look.
