Another Step DONE!!!! Yippee!!!!

Yesterday, I worked on the Star Quilt Along Quilt and got blocks 5-10 completed. I was so excited to have made such progress. This morning, I was determined to finish up the other blocks and TA-DA!!!! I did!!!

I finished all 13 blocks as well as cut out all the sashing strips and sashing squares. I got all the rows sewn and just had to lay them out to see what they would look like. Here they are......


Now, on to sewing the rows together and then, on to the borders!! Whoo Hoo!!! I can't believe I'm getting it done.

And, tomorrow, I'm going to the Houston Internation Quilt Festival. I'm so excited to be able to go again this year. We've had such a crazy time of it lately and I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it. I made the final decision this morning with DH's hearty, "Alright!". He's a sweetie and is so glad for me. And a big shout out for Dear Younger Son who will be taking over caregiving duties for me, so that I can attend. Thanks son!!!

I'm going to be meeting up with a bloggy friend. This will be our first face to face. I hope to take some pics of all the lovely things I see, but I'm unsure of what I can legally share on my blog. I'll be taking pics of the quilts for sure, but I think those are copywrited. Anyway, wish you were all going to be there with me.

Happy Quilting!!!!
