Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Today I am making a list of the works in progress that I want to finish this summer. I am going with the thought that a plan will help me realize some finishes in the project area.
This is a picture of one of those projects. It is part of a red and white quilt I am designing. It will be a center medallion kind of placement. It is my first attempt at set in blocks. It came out just okay. I will use it but I hope for a better set of points next time I try this type of block. Have you ever done this type of piecing and do you have any tips on getting the points and bulk on the wrong side to work for you and not be a lump?
The small block in the picture is one of seven that will all be different styles of stars that will be floating out around the large center block. It is made strip piecing style and is not hard to keep those points realitively decent. The rest of the blocks will be four patches or solid blocks of red and white.
Well what do you think? And what are you doing this summer? Any plans for quilting, catching up on unfinished projects or just enjoying the season?
