    My oldest friend (in terms of how long I have known her) is having her first grandson next month. Here is the finished quilt top. I was going to add another border (red) but after I put the blue one on, the quilt said it was finished :lol:

    Any suggestions on how to quilt it? I'm thinking of hand quilting as I can do a better job at that as opposed to machine quilting.....

    How big are the red stars approx? I think I'd start with quilting a " echo around them and then see what else it needs. I really like the way the blue star forms in the background. I agree the blue border is nice & maybe bind it with the red?

    The star blocks are each 12" with the border at 3" (finished). I have enough of the blue fabric for the backing. And the red would be cute for the binding and echo quilting is maybe all it needs....Thanks! :D

    Sometimes I tend to "over think" things.... :roll:

    I love it!

    Sewjoyce...what a pretty little quilt for a new GB. Love the star around the star. I also think echo is the way to go.
