Floating Stars in Idaho

I put out a request for Floating Star Blocks in Sept. The goal was to get as many varied size blocks as I could by time of the MQX West Show in Portland, OR. I was able to make 7 quilts from the blocks and an 8th one from some Moda Star blocks. I promised all blocks would be put into quilts for overseas.

I made December the month to get these quilts made and to LA's. They are pieced and I have 2 back, finished, laundered, in cases and waiting for the rest of them. I expect them soon. A Big thank you to all the LA's who stepped up to see them through to the end. Please enjoy the quilt show. Can you find your blocks? There are no patterns - except in my head.
