A Little Progress

 
I know block 4 has already been posted, I have 3 blocks of the Summer Star Sew Along completed. These are so cute and it doesn't take long to make one block, so why don't I have block 4 done yet....I was busy today driving the Triangle Farm Tour. Found some wonderful stuff and enjoyed the garden tour.
 
I'm making a red and white quilt with the exchange squares from last years swap. I'm making my quilt queen size and needed 9 blocks more than the pattern, for a total of 25 blocks. The quilt will be 91"x91". It's a free pattern called Charming Stars on Moda Bake Shop. All the blocks are complete but I still need to add the sashing and border. A couple of bloggers have already finished this quilt Quilting Daze and Sunshine Yellow.
 
I don't get many good pictures of Lula, I especially like this one. I caught her resting on the stairs enjoying the sun, she is my little princess.

Happy Quilting.

Great job! You are right, the little blocks are so quick and easy, I may let 3 or 4 'stack up' before I sew on them again. LOL ;-) Love your red/white~ I am so leaning that way for my squares from the swap~ just need the time. Have a great weekend!
