    I had help from the ladies at my LQS with help selecting borders. I'm so lucky to have a LQS very close to home that has a helpful staff and great prices. Now it needs to be quilted.

    It turned out very nice, beeyoutifullll. I know what you mean about a friendly quilt shop, I run to mine all the time, and they are very helpful, and supportive. I love your colors.

    That is so beautiful!! Was it hard doing the stars? I have that same pattern, but haven't made it yet. After seeing yours I am anxious now to do it. I love the colors. I really like all EB patterns. She has a different style of putting the quilt together though doesn't she? But the end result is always a surprise, when you find out how easy it was.

    Wanda I did a practice piece of four blocks in Christmas colors first. I had to be very careful to maintain an accurate 1/4" when doing the stars. EB uses a special cutting ruler for her method of making of flying geese. Once the stars are done it was very easy to follow her directions and her short cuts.
