In the mood for some piecing, I dug into the boxes of PHD's and came across this Bali Sea
Star I started a while back. Enough was cut that I could do some sewing without straining my sore hand. This brings the block count for this quilt up to 10. I have 5 more cut. The pattern in Kim Brackett's book calls for 20 with a piano key border. I will not finish it like that and I don't know how many blocks I will make. That might depend on how far my background fabric will go. For the border, I may go random strip lengths or not. After the next 5 blocks I will put them all up on the wall and see what other colors I want to use. The others use red and green.
Love the blocks, Gayle! With all the white in delectable mountain, I think the blue floral works and ties the whole quilt together. Such lovely quilting you do.
I like the floral border, but I would audition a solid or tone on tone smaller inner border and see how that looks.
