Dazzling Scraps Progress

I've been making pretty good progress since yesterday's beginning stitches on my Sew Day project, Dazzling Scraps.  I've gotten 3 out of the 4 blocks constructed!  Woohoo...and this even includes a full day of fabric shopping today!

Block A
 I decided to construct the quilt in a controlled scrappy way since my mother-in-law really loves the Americana colorway.  Block A will be arranged to make large red stars with a small gold star center. I made 20 of these.
Block B
Block B will be sewn together to make a small blue center star.  You can see how those A Blocks will fit to the corners as well.  I think there were 16 of these done.

Block D
Yeah, you caught me...I skipped the C Blocks for now.  I was getting tired, so I went for the easiest and least number of blocks to complete.  Block D only required 4, so I finished them up and these will be the cornerstones of the pieced border.

So far so good.  I'm liking the mix of fabrics thus far...these are ALL from stash - some are from deep, deep stash!  See those country checks?'s time to use it up and this was the perfect project!
