    I am soooo in love with how this turned out, i even sewed the binding on by hand... I got to use ALL 3 of my machines for once.

    I even discovered Flange - which by the way is my new best friend LOL...It certainly made a difference in this quilt.

    My cousin is going to Boston University in the fall (thats why it is red/black)

    Thanks for looking...I can look at it all day LOL

    It went from this.....

    Every quilt needs someone to love it, i put her initials on it.

    Flange is the red fabric in-between the black border and the binding, i felt it needed something else and the ladies at my LQS explained it to me...basically it is fabric that is 1-1/4 wide, folder in half and put on before the binding goes on...LOVED IT

    Flange is the way the binding uses two colors that are rather narrow. If you google flange for quilting you will get lots of info and tutorials.

    This quilt is gorgeous!! Love the colors and the flange was a great finishing.

    Awesome quilt! I love the colors.
    Flanges do add a little pizzazz to a quilt!

    Can you share where you got the pattern, this would be great for a baby quilt I need to get done.

    Thanks

    LOVE the ruler, however i only have the Petite and I wanted a bigger star, so we didn't use the ruler this time around (but used the technique)
