    Starry Night

    I just finished this One Block Wonder for my cousin who just retired from the NYC transit authority. He is coming to visit on Sunday. At first I didn't care for how the hexagons came together. I think I prefer lighter, brighter colors. My daughter helped pick out the border fabrics and as I worked on it, I began to appreciate it more. I also convinced myself that it was a nice masculine quilt. My daughter said it reminded her of Starry Night, so that is what I named it.

    I love this quilt. It always amazes me when you see the finished OBW quilt. It's hard to imagine what it will be like after seeing just the fabric.

    I want to tell you that you should get rid of it and I'll offer to take it off your hands.... but I don't think that will work.... It is one beautiful quilt!! Or should I say, "One more beautiful quilt"?

    Fantastic name! It's beautiful and I'm sure will be appreciated for many years to come.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It definitely resembles Van Gogh's "Starry Night". You did a beautiful job on it!!
