Star BOM Block 13

I modified both the orientation of the larger star as well as the appearance of the center star in this last block in Judy Laquidara's Star BOM series. I liked the idea of having two star-in-a-star blocks in the quilt, and I preferred this variation.

I drafted the rest of the quilt already, and I'll get started on the sashing next. I am so good at starting new projects and so bad at finishing them; so I want to keep the forward momentum going instead of waiting until May, when the last installment is published, or who knows when to finish the top. I've got a fighting chance this way!

Your blocks are turning out great. Are these the Judy L Star blocks? I've thought about doing a hexagon quilt. But I know me & I perfer machine piecing so I think I'll watch your progress there!

Nice... and most of us relate to that 'easily distracted by another project' thing. That explains the UFOs that we keep hiding all over the house!

Cheering for you...!

Another crisp, beautiful star, that is going to be a spectacular quilt.
