WiP/FMC - First Rows of Hunter's Star

I like this quilt, but man, does it involve a lot of trimming. Strip piece the star point, trim; strip piece the other star point, trim; square that piece, add the triangle, add the other (trimmed) side, trim...
But hey - two rows! (And 72 blocks to trim.)

For my Fifteen Minute Challenge, I'm still waiting on my mom to make a decision on sashing for Frolicking Pinwheels, so Sew Starry became my FMC this week.
I pieced each section in fifteen minutes every day - two halves of the center on Wednesday and Thursday, star side pieces on Friday-Tuesday. I'm on track to finish the star pieces before the next set of instructions come out - yay for 15 minutes of daily dedicated work!

This website was on the Quilting Gallery yesterday, so I started making a couple four-patches with the whites I'm using in Skorca! and the leftovers from Sew Starry. 

Fat Quarter Stars - 4/9 blocks - #4 finished this week
