To-Do for the week of Sept 28th-Oct 4th:
- Stitch a grey Sashiko square with variegated turquoise floss. √Done
- Write my October 2021 OMG post. √Done
- Make some ombré wonky stars for my Oct ’21 OMG project.√Done
This is was a quick Seven Treasures Sashiko square to stitch. For now I’m done stitching Sashiko squares with this color scheme. I plan to minimally quilt five of these gray/turquoise squares, bind them, and make them into a set of coasters for a Christmas gift.
See my October 2021 One Monthly Goal here. Below are the first four stars I made for this project:
And here are four more wonky stars (they are definitely fun to make):
And a Squirrel…
I made a mini for my Denver Broncos-loving friend, Erica. I decided to somewhat replicate the shape of a football and made it reversible. I used some of what I learned from Nicholas Ball’s Quilt Finishings to bind this small curved mini that measures 3.75″ at its widest and 6″ long.
To-Do for the week of Oct 5th-11th:
- Make some blocks for my Blakely SAL quilt top.
- Make more ombré wonky stars for my Oct ’21 OMG project.
- Stitch a Sashiko square with a totally different color scheme.
Linking up with Texas Quilt Gal: To-Do Tuesday.
Those are going to make beautiful coasters! Love the football, and I bet your friend is thrilled.
Thanks for linking up to To Do Tuesday. 🙂
Beautiful Sashiko embroidery block. Love the wonky stars too.
Beautiful stars! I have yet to do a curved binding–hope to do a double wedding ring or something like that with the curves…someday! Your’s is cute….tho I have to say it would look MUCH better with KC Chiefs fabric…

OKay, there was supposed to be a “” after that KC comment!
Apparently it’s not accepting my characters but third time’s a charm: a “wink”
Hi Mary! Those wonky stars are so darn cute. The Broncos football mini is adorbs, too. I know your friend will love it! Coasters from the Sashiko embroidery pieces are going to be beautiful – too lovely to use. ~smile~ Roseanne
The Sashiko and those wonky stars are so pretty. The Broncos squirrel was a great idea – the binding worked really well!
Your wonky stars are so pretty, Mary! I really love those colors with the gray background. The Broncos mini is great – fun idea!
Love the coaster plans! And what a cute mini for your friend.
