Finishing this block means that I'm one block from being on par with the blocks given by Amandajean in the Star Quilt along. Thanks to better lighting (a sunny day), the colour of my background fabric is looking truer in my photos, so you can tell it's aqua blue and not white, that I've paired with bright red for my blocks. I can't tell you how happy these colours are making me.
I've also sewn together about half of the setting blocks needed for the quilt top.
It's so exciting to lay out the blocks and realize that I'm about half done the quilt top. The hardest part will be waiting for the final star blocks to be revealed over the next few weeks because now that I'm this far into making the quilt, I just want to keep going and complete it!
