Weekend progress

Since my last post I managed to get a little more done, despite it being a busy and exhausting weekend!

My scrappy lone star quilt was last seen like this:

And now looks like this:

Eleven trimmed diamonds.

 I'm really looking forward to putting the stars together!  But since I'm at a good stopping point with it, I'm going to refocus on the triangle quilt.  I managed to get to the local quilt shop, and with my husband's help, picked out a nice fabric for the border:

Definitely going to do a double border!

Now to decide how wide to make the borders!  How wide would you make them?


  1. I think I would make the black border about half the width of the red border. I'd then think about bonding it with red.

  2. I'm really loving the colors of both these quilts! I stopped by for the first time from Freshly Pieced, hi!

  3. I like the borders the way you have them laid out, but typically the inner one is narrower than the outer one (doesn't mean you have to be typical). Good choices of colors.
