Second set of stars

I have been working on my SITP, I really have. Here is the second set of large stars needed. I think I would like this pattern more if I had only used two colors but no, I had to make it hard on myself and do three. I don't think I will ever do that again. I am working on the small stars now. I think I will need about 24 of them. I am making a queen size so I have to make more blocks. I hope my math is right and I don't have to make anymore while putting the top together but time will tell.

I have decided to take a detour. (Like that is a surprise. ) A comment was left on one of my posts to make the carpenter's star smaller and so I did. I used 2.5 inch squares and it finishes to 16.5 inch block. I will make 9 of these and sew into a quilt top of some sort. I am in the process of trimming the HST's and boy is that boring. I will take a break from this and work once again on the SITP.
Have a good week-end. We are going to have a very very hot one. They are predicting 104 tomorrow and 102 on Saturday. I don't think there will be any outdoor work being done. Housework and sewing, sounds good to me. Good evening to all. Dot.

Using three colors for your SITP is harder now, but I am sure you will be more pleased with it when you are finished! You are making great progress. I hope you didn't think I was trying to rush you in my email.
