The weather is so crummy here that I couldn't even think about doing things outside so I got in a few hours of good sewing time yesterday. I finished all the arc blocks and started piecing the small version of Summer Sunset. This part is a little slow because I'm actually unpicking a bit of one seam in the star pints so that I can reverse direction and avoid what seems like 25 layers of fabric. That's the think about foundation piecing. You don't have much say over seam directions so seams get really bulky. But it's looking good so far and I'm just pressing the heck out of the seam areas.
This weekend I'd like to get the centers of both quilts done and have a plan for borders. I expect that I'm going to want to due more of the dark purple fabric. I don't think I have enough for a narrow border around the center before adding the gradient. I still have to cut the 4 corners and I'll see what's left from that.
I also want to cut out my green feedsack blocks for the month and make some sort of green outfit for my American Girl friend.
The weather is supposed to turn to real Spring by Monday. I sure hope so.

This is so lovely. I really like your color choices for this quilt. I can hardly wait to see the finish.

The star is looking fabulous! The weather here was beautiful and very unseasonal for Ohio. There have been Marchs I can remember where it snowed and it was blustery cold all month. It still is down in the upper 20's and lower 30's in the morning, but it has been warming up by noon. It is nice to get out and work in the fresh air. Hopefully your weather improves.
