Starry Summer Quilt

top that I started last year is done!


Here it is with only three rows of six,


and here it is with five rows of six and the border!  Can I just say "Yay!"
I pulled it off the WIP pile this week after some yummy vintage came in from Jeni at In Color Order.
I shouldn't share this, but she has beautiful vintage fabric, ships fast and has the cutest bunny named George.

The star blocks are from Modify Traditions blog.  Easy peasy!
They measure 12" finished.  I anchored the corners with some of my favorite vintage prints.  I'm pulling out full size vintage sheets I've stashed to find the perfect one for the back, and once that's done, it's on to basting and quilting.
 It measures 72" x 84" and is just the right size to snuggle under on the hammock (when the mosquitoes allow)!

Hope your summer is going well.  Javi is working part time and loafing part time.  Middleman is still lifeguarding and Ben just gets away with about as much as he can.  God is good!
