    Just finished this quilt this weekend decided to add one more border on the outside of the fabric in the center of stars. Which is bluebonnets.
    I really like how it turned out.

    Thanks, for all the kind words. I'm thinking about buting this one in a
    local show this fall. Not sure DH said its to simple of a design. Wish
    he had sewn it. Bet he would be saying that. Oh well. he is hard to
    please....

    I think it is definitely worthy of being in a show! Be sure to show us the finished project.

    Beautiful and I love the colours and those really sharp star points! Doesn't have to be complex to be worthy of a show - you should definitely enter it!

    I have never seen that arrangement of that pattern before. Its like the V8 commercial--somebody hit me up side the head and say "Why didn't I think of that!" Your quilt is gorgeous but I am amazed at the layout. Just goes to show how dumb I am. I am familiar with the pattern but never would have thought of doing it that way. Good job!!!! Let me know when you need my address so you can send it on its way to me! :lol: :lol: :lol:
