    Army Camo Quilt

    The sister of an acquaintance asked me to make a quilt from her husband's old camo. I decided to go with a very large lone star in the center. I had three basic fabrics to use so I decided to keep it very formal in design and orderly rather than scrappy looking. With three fabrics, it's too hard to make it look "random" without trying really, really hard. And it's a military quilt so I thought orderly would be a good representation.

    Here are the two choices:

    Star #1




    Star #2

    I like them both Maybe you can alternate them ?
    Quilts are like friends - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Friendship promotes the good and happiness in each other.

    This is going to be one huge star in the center of a quilt. I sent the pics to the woman who commissioned the quilt but I'm really hoping she chooses #1.

    Both are great but #1 "pops" more for me. Have fun with whatever you choose!

    I also prefer number 1 because of the lighter color in the center. With the darker colors on the outer points, a light filler will really make the star pop. Maybe a marble/blender in a beige or green?

    The star is a great idea!!

    I like the first-more contrast.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I like 1 best because it goes from old to new camo with the deployment fabric in the middle tying it all together. Very nice!

    I like number one-I made my son in law a lap quilt with the brown camo and the center was the light brown-turned out very well-he loves it!
