    A red/white/blue star quilt --- quilted by Dee

    I had the honor of quilting this for MHansen6 here on the board. Marie is in our quilt group --- she makes the most fantastic quilts, purses, etc. I had a blast with this --- just about told all family and friends to stay away this summer so I could work on this!!! I used Warm and Natural batting and MetroEmb thread. It measures a whopping 90 x 100"!!! Thanks, Marie -- I LOVE it!!!!

    I love everything about your quilt. What an accomplishment. In looking at the blocks themselves I am in awe of the detail. Is this a pattern you can share?

    murphy1 -- i don't have a pattern --- look up Mhansen6 and ask her what it's called.

    Alfosa421 --I was going to put that in and forgot! The log cabin blocks are 4" square -- the strips are 1/2" finished. The stars have 3/4" finished strips in them. Yeah -- she's either a genius for being able to sew them or she's a glutton for punishment!! LOL

    BRAVO to both of you!! Love the pattern, I like it better in your red/white/blue than I do in the original scrappy. I just see so much more of pattern in this version. The quilting ... outstanding .. just perfect for this quilt.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
