    That is SO cute!

    I tried to click on it and make it bigger, but still couldn't tell- are the stars raggy, too? How clever!

    Thanks everyone

    Yes, the stars are ragged too. It is in the washer at the moment. I'll take another pic when it is dried. I'll take a close up of the stars for you too.

    I cut out a piece of white fabric and then another in the other fabric. I put the white behind the colored so I'd have 2 layers to rag instead of one. I stitched about 1/2 inch inside the shape. The star was a template in the book the quilt was in.

    Sorry, I don't know the name of the book, it belongs to a friend.

    It just came out of the dryer. Here it is again after being washed. And here's a close up of the stars.

    I love the look of your quilt and never
    get tired of the "red, white and blue" look!
    It's a favorite!
