Summer Star Scrappy SAL: Assembly Progess

There was no evening stitching after work this week, so I was happy to have some blocks of sewing time this weekend.  I focused on getting more blocks assembled for Diane Knott's Summer Star Scrappy Sew Along.
By this afternoon, I finally finished piecing all the half & half blocks.

Once the half & half blocks were complete, I was ready to start assembling the individual blocks into larger sections.

The neutral 9-patch blocks get assembled into larger sections - 3 blocks by 3 blocks.

Blue 9-patches and blue and white half & half blocks were assembled for another component.

Finally, I assembled these blocks - wrong!!  The colors are flipped - the blue triangle blocks should be white and the remainder of the block should be blue!  That's what happens when Dear Husband and Dear Dogs are clamoring for your attention at the end of the afternoon!

I'm enjoying the Sew Along, even if I don't have as much stitching time as I'd like.  Diane's design is pretty ingenious, and her directions are great!  I'm looking forward to seeing more SAL projects in the weekly link-up.


  1. What a fun quilt and I LOVE the colors.

  2. Husbands and dogs... always trying to take you away from important things like quilting...
    Looking forward to seeing the next attempt!

  3. You are really moving along with this Sew-along so well. Your piece will be such a beautiful blue it..I, on the other hand, am still sewing my first strips together...(late to the partay as usual..) great work! hugs, Julierose

  4. Your blue and white version of Diane's pattern is lovely.

  5. I just love this in blue and white! It's so pretty and I'm sorry about the oops. Distractions do that to me too. Thanks for sharing!!

  6. That is going to be a pretty blue & white quilt.

  7. I love your blue and white quilt. What a fabulous idea of doing this quilt as a two color quilt. I'm still working on the neutral nine patches. I can hardly wait to see the birth of your quilt. 😁
