I wanted to make my grand daughter's other nana an Americana quilt so I just found star patterns I liked and did them in red and blue. I also put on a Kansas Trouble block because that's where we live (and her grand daughter and daughter) and a Illinois blues square because that's where she lives and a Missouri puzzle block because she has to go through Missouri to get here from Ill. and she did live in Mo. at one time. Finished the quilt top over a year ago but tried to quilt it on my domestic machine and didn't like it. Finally got a longarm and used a panto to quilt it (had to rip out all the old quilting first-ugh).
