Quilts for Aunts, Part 2

Welcome to part two of aunt's week. It's really not, but apparently that's who I have been sewing for lately! My mother's sister is probably my biggest quilting fan, and purchaser. She has been asking for navy/white quilt for some time, and when the Lexington line by Moda came out this fall, I ordered it up for her. It's was exactly what she wanted. 



She also liked my patriotic star quilt last year and begged for it to be hers with out any luck. So, Lexington + stars = perfect combination. I used the tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew for the blocks. This pattern/tutorial might be my all time favorite, or it's the one I have used the most! 



There will be 25 blocks in all, for a 5 x 5 arrangement, now I just need to get them finished. They are looking so good together so far, I cannot wait to see them finished. And ... more importantly, I hope that my aunt likes loves them.
