    Wonderful quilt and great idea to add the side borders.

    What a great border addition to your beautiful star quilt...I love the variety of star blocks.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Your quilt is very pretty, but your extra border makes it extra special. I purchase kits sometimes. I love to make changes that make mine different. Great job!

    I love how you changed the size/ shape! What a great addition you made. It's a beautiful quilt. I don't care for square quilts only because they don't really fit beds.
    You did a great job!!
