Stitching the Star Blocks Together!

I’m finally at that point in this quilt where I’ve started sewing the star hexagon blocks together.  Yay!  I laid them out on the sofa Sunday and took a couple of photos.  I’m working in sections that are one or two rows of four or five blocks because I’m still sewing these on my way to and from work and that’s about the largest I can easily manage on a moving train.

Of course, my cat decided to inspect them.

I think she approves.

I still have to make some half blocks to fill in the top and bottom.  Hopefully, I’ll get to that over the weekend.

I’m linking up with Life Under Quilts (a little late for the Monday star count, I know!).

      Thanks Kathy. Yes I have been thinking about what’s next-although I should finish some UFOs, I’m starting the La Passacaglia quilt in a few weeks (can’t wait!!) and so want to at least have this top together before then!

    The blocks are lovely and they look great together. This is going to be a spectacular quilt when it is done.

    What is it with cats and quilts? When I arrange my blocks on the floor cats come from nowhere and sprawl across my work. Good thing they are cute!

      Thanks Karen I know what you mean about the cats and quilts. She wasn’t even in the room when I started taking pictures. Then all of a sudden there she was!
