asterisk quilt

March was my turn as quilter in the do. Good Stitches Wish Circle and I requested asterisks blocks (tutorial here) sized up a little and made in turquoise, orange, red, and yellow with a black or dark gray asterisk.

I am always so indecisive about choosing; I want something that won't be too time consuming but that will still be fun and that will make a nice quilt to donate to Project Linus.  It is really amazing how well these collaborative quilts come together.
Collaborative quilt made by the do. Good Stitches Wish Circle March 2014
Last time I spoke with Project Linus they told me that our area has the most need for baby/young kid quilts so this one is a little on the smaller side.  The finished size is 36" x 45".
asterisk quilt backing
The backing is from Erin McMorris' Astrid collection.  I love, love this collection.  
asterisk quilt binding
The binding is Ann Kelle chevron.  I attached it by machine which, thank goodness, I have gotten a little better at.  Lately my carpal tunnel has been bothering me a little more and I have been machine binding to keep from aggravating the problem.  It's not my favorite way, but it does the job.  

You can see previous do. Good Stitches quilts that I have put together:
