    Remember the blue and white star block exchange? I joined and I tried out a bunch of patterns trying to decide what to do. I settled on the paper pieced (center and corner squares)....but life got in the way and I was unable to complete a set of 12 on time so I had to drop out. (Good news-FIL is out of hospital and living back home).

    I put the stars way and figured they could be used some day.....

    We have a wonderful family that lives near us and thier oldest daughter was married in June. Her wedding colors--blue and white. Her wedding flowers--hydrangeas. That was fabric I had in my stash--in fact all of it was except the backing. How perfect is that?

    It will go in the mail after I finish the label. :lol:

    See when things go wrong there is a reason we just need to wait on God to show us.

    Beautiful quilt! Don't you just love it when you already have the fabric on hand?

    I love the way you set them, she is sure to love and cherish it!

    The paper pieced stars are Carol Doak-from her free patterns.
    Most of the rest are from Quilters Cache-my favorite site :lol:
    Not all of them have "star" in the name. I searched through looking for something that would work for the exchange.

    That is very beautiful!
    Nice job!
    I made my own Blue and White exchange blocks with just myself. I wanted to see if I could make them all the same size, etc...
    I put them into a quilt and had it done by a longarmer here on the board and am sending it to my younger brother and his wife for their anniversary.
    Thanks for showing.
