I've wanted to make the Carpenter's Star for a long time and decided to do one for my MIL. Problem is I really don't like the colors. :-( A friend of mine wisely told me yesterday to remember gifts are made with the recipient in mind. Oh yeah, I thought it was all about me! Lol! It's a surprise for MIL, but these are the colors in her sunroom, which is where I think she will use it. Her walls are the minty green and her favorite reading chair is a wingback in these colors, muted. I think it'll match her house perfectly- I'm just not loving it. Sure does make it hard for me to finish it. Oh well, we'll be making a trip there in the spring so I'm finishing it now and having it ready to deliver. I just started the quilting on it yesterday on my DSM.
