Wow! For a long time I have wanted a blue and white quilt so now I almost do. I feel great having sewn the last strip of HSTs together and the whole Day Bee mystery top together. Some how I miscounted and had to sew about a dozen more HSTs today to have enough to finish the border. I knew from the beginning that the design had a lot of pieces. I’m glad I challenged myself and tackled this project, but I am also very glad the top is complete. I do like the rectangular shape better than the original square. It currently measures 48 by 70”.
The outer HST border needs a stabling strip before quilting so I may add a light and then dark plain border. All the piecing should be the star and not the quilting so the quilting design should be simple. I will have to give that more thought. I’m just glad the top is done.
