Checking the Asterisk Quilt off the list

A late summer finish (never mind that it was started 14 months ago) adding a bit of cheer to late fall grey skies.  The asterisk quilt is finally done!!!
The blocks in this quilt were made by the Bee Obsessed virtual quilt group over on Flicker.  I had planned to make it twin size but, well, I just got tired of making more blocks. Now it's a great picnic size quilt for a little girl and her friends. I picked the theme and all the fabric came from stashes. I loved examining each and every block when they arrived - sew much fun to see how others put fabrics together, find common patterns, etc.

 
That brings my WIP quilt list down to:
1.  Red and white flimsy a la Denyse Schmidt for my nephew (it's been waiting for almost 2 years).
2.  Assembling my husband's brown and orange quilt (his color request).
3.  Black, white and green string quilt for another virtual bee.  I'm actually working on quilting this one now.
4.  Assembling the rainbow block quilt (from another flickr bee).
