Asterisks quilt, progress and finish...

Munchkin Quilts submitted this sweet Asterisks quilt, isn't is sweet? I love the blue and green lately. The bright blue and green! I also love the offset blocks, super fun! Just love this quilt, and the photos. Here are some more of Munchkin Quilts finishes, lovely.  Also here are a few block tutorials, handy! Be sure to visit Munchkin Quilts...


This is a big deal that I've ironed ALL the seams open. The blocks are so pretty. There are 15 that are the prints with white asterisk lines, and there are currently 5 that are white with the turquoise/pear dots. There will soon enough be another 10 that are in the plaid and big dots as seen below. All of these will be set on wonky point with whatever the asterisk lines are - either white for the print blocks or the respective prints for the white blocks.

 Can I repeat: SO MUCH IRONING!!!
 Oooh, pretty, the inverse blocks from each other. 
Oooh, look, all three prints from a coordinating line. 



I have now squared up all the Asterisk blocks. They are currently 8", and then once I set them on point, the blocks will be around 12". In other news, I also acquired an actual coffee table which will also be my cutting surface, it's perfect height to my couch for that and it's 30" square so it's got a nice amount of space. Previously my "coffee table" was a storage tub with a non-flat lid. It was finally starting to bother me, so a field trip to Ikea and $30 later, I've got an actual coffee table. What's great is it has a shelf under, and I can store quilt blocks in progress there, my cutting mat, rulers, etc. In an apartment that's only 284 sq. ft, every little bit of storage is key!


That is 30 blocks right there, and all the trimmings plus a small glimpse at the new table. I'm pretty pleased with how the blocks are right now. Since the rowing season ends after this weekend's trip to Philadelphia, I'll have quite a bit more time to dedicate to this and other projects that are crying out (3 baby quilts for two friends who are expecting - one of those friends has twins on the way).

Thanks, everyone! As I read your comments the quilt is over my lap. And the staging is just the area in front of my apartment. I live on a busy road with a carriage way, the grassy area that separates the two has trees and benches, so I walked out my front door and about 50 feet further to get these shots.
