Stars and Squares, or Quiltfilia

For the last couple of days I've been suffering a severe attack of quiltfilia, a strong, unreasonable desire to quilt something.  One possible reason could be a visit Lynn and I paid to a little art gallery in Peninsula.  There were a few little quilts there, no more than about 2 by 3 feet, which were quite charming.  Their appeal was not at all reduced by the fact that none of the seams were straight.  So, I can probably do at least that well. 

I wanted something easy, but with a strong geometrical appeal.  I've thought about making a major quilt with a Star of David motif (no, I'm not Jewish, I just think it would be fun).  But this will be a minor quilt, so I can use easy stars.  I came up with a design I call "Stars and Squares":

Becky, my oldest daughter, is expecting her first baby in July.  Do you think this can be ready by then?  Stay tuned!
