Checking In: Irish Stars

It seems like a good time to check in and see how your Irish Stars blocks are coming along.  If you are new or nearly new, don’t forget you can find all information about this Quilt Along HERE.

As you may have heard, I am making the queen size quilt using 1-1/2″ squares.  I am not saying it is a good idea, but it is the idea I am using at the moment.  It will take 365 blocks total. If my calculations are correct, that is 9749 pieces.

It seems overwhelming, but I am already 63 blocks in…not too bad.

Right now they are just a pile of pieces, but I can glimpse the beautiful quilt they will become.

So, how about you?  How is yours coming?  Remember this is not a race or a contest.  We are each traveling our own road with our own destination.  And, with encouragement and persistence, we will get there.
