I spent a little time yesterday cutting out more of the alternate hexagon blocks that link my Texas stars together. More progress could have been made but I kept running out of hexagons in the evening when I do my hand piecing. I am so glad to have that remedied. I have five rows of stars completed and will be working on row 6 today. I will be house sitting my son's house next week and I think it might be the perfect time to really make some great progress on this quilt.
If you read my blog you know I have been in a quandary about a border. It doesn't help that I am not a big fan of borders so another decision has been made. No border and more stars to make this the quilt the size I want. I am enjoying this journey so much already, I am looking ahead to start another hand piecing project once this one is complete. I don't know why but sewing dot to dot and then turning over the top at the end of an evening and seeing a quilt top get larger and larger is so much fun! Of course, pretty fabrics and spectacular colors help a lot too!
