    This is the first star quilt I've made and the first one I'm please with that has come off my Longarm! While I see boo-boos, I'm pleased with it! It's from ALL scraps (except backing). The quilt is 51x68. I chose to not do a border....to let the stars have center stage.

    The pattern is called "I Have a Dream" from Judy Martin's book, Cookies 'n' Quilts. Her patterns are so easy to follow!!!
