WIP Wednesday-Rocket Age

I have had a very busy and productive week. I know it's only Wednesday, but I have a picnic quilt for a blog hop and two baby quilts quilted and bound and going round and round in the dryer right now. So with all that progress, it's time to go back to work on another quilt.  Remember this?
This is the quilt I am making for V from Riley Blake's Rocket Age fabric line. It is the same pattern as one I pieced for brother B from the Sasparilla line, also by Riley Blake. Lots of piecing in these quilts so it's taking awhile. I have to get myself psyched up for all this piecing. Here's where I stand:
 The pale blue flying geese with the orange stars are all done. They are trimmed and pressed.
 So I sat down at the machine today and I had the stack of dark blue geese with red stars to work on.

Stitching, stitching, stitching. This kind of mindless sewing is not too bad, but I need to put music on the iPod to get through it. Once I start putting together bigger chinks, I am more excited and can focus better.
I get it done fairly quickly by chain piecing and trying not to think about how many pieces there are.
And after 90 minutes this afternoon, between loads of laundry, I am to the trimming stage. Next, I will press all of them.
And progress is made in the Rocket Age! Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
