Are we there yet? No, not quite.
I made 12 Carpenter Star blocks (also called Carpenter's Wheel, Dutch Rose or Double Star) that finish at 16 inches. I made the HSTs out of a bag of '30s reproduction fabric scraps.
Right now the top measures 48 x 64. I rarely add borders to quilts but I always intended for this quilt to have borders. I just did not plan the borders and I'm still thinking about that.
I'm also wondering if I should have added sashing between the Carpenter Stars. I don't like to rip thigs apart once they are together so I don't think at this point I will rip and add sashing but I'm still wondering and thinking.
Are we there yet?
No. But we are a little closer to our destination.
Any suggestions on a route to the border?
