WIP Thursday (a bit late)

I'm a bit late on this week's update, but that's how things go sometimes. My little guy turned four today, so it's been a busy week. But that's not to say I haven't gotten a ton of sewing done (mostly due to some very late nights, as you might have noticed from some of my IG posts this week). I bounced back and forth between the Convergence and Fading Star quilts all week. After asking for a lot of opinions, I decided to leave just the diagonal quilting (instead of making it a crosshatch), and now it's trimmed and ready for this super fun ombre binding.
Most of my time was spent on the Fading Star quilt, and I'm thrilled with how it came together. I finished the rest of the blocks, pieced the top and backing, and just last night, got it all basted, so bring on the quilting! This quilt required so much checking and checking to make sure everything matched up, so there was a whole lot of this
and this
to get to this
and this.
I have never wished for a design wall more. But now it's all done, and I'm so excited to see this one finished and do the big reveal!
