The past week has been fairly productive for quilting. After finishing the Storm at Sea quilt top before Memorial Day weekend, I wanted to switch over to something smaller. I finished up these four pineapple blocks for my red, white & blue scrap quilt.
My other current quilting project has been enlarging the back for the Storm at Sea quilt. The wide quilt fabric I have is about a foot too short. I am making a row of stars similar to the border design in the quilt top and that row will run all the way across the back of the quilt. Many of the parts in these stars were leftovers from making the quilt top. This photo shows half of the row of stars to go across. Now I just have to figure out a workable way to press and square up the big piece of backing fabric. This is when I really wish I had one of those big boards for ironing.
