WiP/FMC - Big Blue

Seriously. 91x101", and I haven't even added the borders yet.
I'm dreading the borders - this sucker is HEAVY and pulls a lot at the machine. And all the pins are stabby (but so worth it for those perfect points. And I am not usually a pinner.) I'm very thankful this one is going to a professional for quilting.

Poor Sew Starry stayed as my Fifteen Minute Challenge quilt due to the time spent on Big Blue
I quilted one side section each on Wednesday-Friday, drew in the rest of the lines on Saturday, watched the Giants kick the Patriots' butts on Sunday (oh, is that not sewing related?), and continued quilting Monday-Tuesday.
I like the side pieces, but I'm not really sure how I want to quilt the inside of the star. I have a couple more fifteen minute sessions before I decide.

Fat Quarter Stars - 5/9 blocks - nada this week
LQS Saturday Sampler 2012 - 3/36 (caught up so far)
Quiltville Orca Bay {Skorca!} - all the Ohio Stars are assembled. Filling in the blue as Big Blue's leaders and enders.
Made in Cherry - see above :)
Swoon A Little, Swoon A Lot - nada (did I mention how BIG Big Blue is? And how time consuming BIG is?)
