Tatum's blocks

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I have made 3 blocks and have made  3 more stars  that i need to trim out with half square triangles.  Then i will lay them out and see if that is enough or if i need to  make more.
Michael's quilt is in the washer with color catchers for the third time.  The backing that i used was some in my stash and it faded bad.
Lots of people have given me fabric and this was a brown plaid that i didn't think would do this.
Maybe this time will be the charm and i want have to use any more. Don't want to use the whole box on just one quilt.
Maybe by Monday i will have most of Tatum's blocks made and can show you.
I decided to do them this way and they measure 21 inches.
With a border, i may need to do nine.  We will see.
We went and walked at 1 o:clock and it got hot, i came home and put on shorts.
The weather man said a high in the 60ths after that rain we got last night but right now it's 76 degress
Have a great sewing day friends.
Quilt happy
