    I finished piecing the top yesterday. I can't wait to quilt this for him, but I'm in the middle of replacing my leaders on my longarm and adding a zipper system, so it might not happen for a week or two.

    The original pattern idea came from the book "Scrap Basket Surprises" and the quilt pattern is "Bali Sea Stars".

    I added sashing and cornerstones to make the starts "float" and the outer black and ivory borders.

    Your quilt is gorgeous! I have that same book and I love the patterns in it, although I still haven't made any of them.

    Beautiful quilt. I love your adjustments to the pattern to make the stars float-they really seem to. Great work and great colors. Love it!
