In progress: Stars






Tonight I finished the final block in the Oh My Stars quilt. 111 blocks: some 12", some 8" and loads at 4"! Here is a satisfying stack of finished blocks:

And here is the state of my dining room as I try to work out my layout:
And here is the first section of six.(The odd orange thing at the top of the photo is the bottom of the wind chimes - I didn't realise it was there till I came to upload it).

The fabric is all from the Moda line Dogwood Trail and although it is far more pretty and pink than I would normally go for I really like it in this design.

If you haven't come across this QAL already, check out the excellent tutorials for all the different star blocks (including a fab court house steps block that I haven't been able to work in with my colour choices).
Tomorrow is Friday Night Sew In, so I think I will be working to get this quilt top fully pieced. Any ideas on quilting?

They look lovely and I am looking forward to seeing your top all together. Hand stitching around every star looks good!!!!
