Still plodding along

I have been somewhat lax in my blogging lately.  With my math homework driving me crazy (who comes up with some of the problems to solve- 12 steps to come up with  the answer being 7?!!!), and work, I have been feeling somewhat stressed.  But, I have been doing some paper piecing to make a quilt for one of my managers at work.  She and I have worked together for about 5-6 years now, and she is retiring in December.  So, of course, I have to make a quilt.  I decided to make some simple, yet colorful blocks, 48 total, then put together in a design.  Here is the pieced block:
 Untrimmed block, pieced on a paper backgroung.

Here are the 4 rows laid out.  I will try to put them together tomorrow, or maybe tonight after I get off work.  I am thinking a solid color inner border, maybe a 1-2 inch width.  Then, a wider outer border maybe 5 or 6 inches.  I do know though, that I will be quilting feathers in the light blue star points. 
I love to quilt feathers. 
Well, I hope everyone has a great Friday.  I have to head off to work in a few minutes.  Oy, the things I do to earn money for fabric! :)
Happy quilting,
