    Bonnie Hunter's Star Struck

    I thought I'd show you the top now, because who knows when I will get it quilted. I have six tops that need quilting. Yikes!

    This is one of Bonnie's scrappy patterns. The quilt is about 55" x 65". After I trimmed all 480 of the little triangular "ears" off to make the main pattern, I decided to make them into HSTs and use them for a border. It was a tedious task - the HSTs are 1 1/4" finished. The quilt was made mostly with scraps that I had trimmed to 2 1/2" wide strips previously and a little help from my stash. I did have to buy the tan border.

    Absolutely beautiful. Does not look at all like a scrappy though. Looks well planned.

    beautiful, love your border
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Fantastic quilt! I admire your tenacity to follow through with the small pieces for the border. It was worth your effort.
