Summer Star

Who doesn't love charm squares?  The pre-cuts and AccuquiltGo cutter are such time savers - love them both!    Check out the Moda Juggling Summer charms...

And the preliminary layout of HSTs...

I think I will need to make a few block placement adjustments before sewing the top together.  Since it will only measure 48" square, I will probably add borders to make it a more comfortable lap quilt size.   Not sure yet what that will be but I am feeling some flying geese may be heading this way!

Notice the teal solid in the bottom right corner on the first photo above.    I will likely use that for the border and the left over charm squares although there are only a few (12) left.

I am planning to work on this and possibly Aunt M's quilt this weekend. 

Some embroidery needs to be added and then the backing completed.   I have also promised a large pillow sham made from the leftover fabric so I better get going on it!
