Start of my Aien throw

Well, I have spent most of the day working on my Alien quilt top. I don't think I am going to be putting on a green border like I first thought. I will finish the blks and then be done with it. I don't think I want it as big a border would make it be, so, an orange binding will finish it off I think...... opionions welcome.

Here is the corner blk. I really like the way it looks with the stars around it.
The green sashing is 3.5" so it is kinda big. But I think with the busy blks it works. And I like how it looks with the stars around the 4 center blks. I thought my pic was with all the stars, didn't realize the top ones got cut off, but this is my future top.... I am not going to say 'quilt' - don't know how to do that yet, but I will learn!!!
So, this is the start of this weeks 'sewing for 20 minutes a day'. Not bad eh??? (yes I was sewing longer than the 20 minutes!! - but I wish I did sew that fast!! I will just have to keep practicing every day and see where that takes me!!


  1. That is a very cool setting for a 4 patch posie. Hmmm, I might have to try it for a future posie quilt, if you don't mind!! I love the green and orange borders. I agree, I think that an orange binding would be perfect.

  2. You're doing great! I have never tried a Stacked Posie, but have a fabric that might be really fun with that. I'll have to try it sometime.

    I think an Orange binding would be fun!

  3. Looks great Brenda, and I think an orange binding will finish it off nicely. A thought here though, wondering if you might try finishing off the star points around the quilt top before you call it done? Just my 2-cents... 8-)
    Happy stitchings!

  4. Oooh, I love that alien fabric!!
