    I fell in love with this block the first day I joined this forum, back in May. Ranger said she did not mind my copying her Avatar, and even gave me the size of her blocks. I immediately started it and had the top finished in a week or so. It was going to be for my DGD Brittany who's 26th birthday is tomorrow. I of course did not quilt it until the past two days...I am a good pressure worker. Brittany has one of my first quilts that I made from fabric purchased in Intercourse, PA. I was limited by the amount I had gotten; thus it's a very small lap quilt. Six months ago she said, "When everyone in the family has their first quilt, do you think you could make me a little bigger one? I am always cold!!"
    Tomorrow I will take this darling granddaughter to lunch and give her this quilt to be an eternal hug from me.

    This is so pretty. I love the colors and the block really shows it off. What a great label too :) :)
    I'm making my eldest GD a quilt (not for Christmas)...since her last two quilts were a baby quilt and a quilt for a little, little girl :).

    Is there anything more fun than making these for our "other kids"???

    It's beautiful, Jeannie! I especially like the textured fabric...the star fabric. It really adds that extra punch. I also like your use of the green and 'star' fabric for the borders.

    Wish I could see it 'in person'.

    Your DGD is going to love it.

    Our Brittany was born at 29 weeks into the pregnancy! She once weighed 2 lbs 13 oz. She's still built small and complains of the cold all the time. She was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and unspecified mental retardation when she was 18 mos old. Well, forget the mental part, or not ever talking. She has called me every night since she was seven!! And after several surgeries on her legs, she has a bad wobble, but she won't use walker or crutches. She is married to a man who is very good to her!! TYJ
