Finally! Some Wedding Stars

So I finally felt like sewing yesterday!  Yay!  It's about time.  I'm gonna be pretty busy since we leave for Tennessee two weeks from today and I need to have this quilt done for the wedding gift.  Why oh why do I procrastinate so much?!  I always pay for it in the end...

So anyway, I'm making this quilt for my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law.  I knew I wanted to make them a quilt, but didn't know where to start knowing they are more traditional.  I decided I wanted to make them a large throw sized quilt for them to snuggle under on the couch together.  Their living room is decorated in an Americana theme so there were my colors and I wanted to keep with the theme by doing some kind of star pattern.  That's when I remembered seeing this Chubby Starts QAL over at Tracyjay Quilts.  Perfect!

I got all of this piecing done yesterday.  I've had everything cut since the middle of August and had six blocks done for the past month.  I finished three more blocks yesterday as well.

Those chain pieces finish at an inch!   They are really hard to piece accurately, but oh well.  I like the way it is turning out and I know they will love it.  I'm calling it Wedding Stars! 

I need to get busy so back to sewing!

Very pretty! I miss my sewing machine. I have some serious carpal tunnel in my right hand right now and am scared I'll sew over my fingers!
