OMG Success - Stellar Stars

My May goal for One Monthly Goal was to finish the January and February blocks for the Stellar Stars 2018 Block of the Month by Cristy @ Purple Daisies Quilting.

✔ Done.  I even finished two of the March blocks.

This is Limelight -- a 12.5-inch block from January.  January's fabrics were red and pink.

As well as a 6.5-inch Ohio Star.

February's fabrics were orange and red.  This is Friends Forever -- another 12.5-inch block.

And another 6.5-inch Ohio Star.

Yellow fabrics made an appearance in March.  Another 12.5-inch block -- Fire Flower.

And...another 6.5-inch Ohio Star.

I gave up on the third block for March -- was having some difficulties with the applique.  I'll try again -- think I need to re-start and not try to fix what I have.

I received my May fabric today.  I think next month's OMG will be the April and May blocks.

If you need some encouragement to finish projects, head over to Patty @ Elm Street Quilts to learn more about the One Monthly Goal.  Did I mention there are prizes to be won!

I hope that starting over with the third March block is just what you need to get it finished, too!

Starting over is sometimes the best option, go for it.

These blocks are so much fun! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

All these blocks are so pretty! I love seeing them all together like this! Me too on not receiving comment notifications. I think (for the time being), if you comment on your post and click the notify me box in the lower right you'll be notified of any comments after the one you made. It's not ideal, but until blogger get's it S#*% together it's the best we can home for!

Wow, such gorgeous star blocks, my favourite quilt block of all. I really like the orange/red combo too!

Very striking blocks!

Great blocks! All this commenting and privacy stuff with Blogger is super annoying.

I love the progression from red through yellow in your photos I wonder if that will happen in your quilt.

You've been busy AND productive! It's a good feeling, I'm sure, and beautifully made blocks, too.
