    UFO completed in time for the 4th of July

    I started this quite a few years ago-maybe 7- and always thought I would make more blocks to make it throw or bed quilt size. Realizing that it wasn't going to happen, I decided to add some borders and get it finished in time for the fouth.


    The original pattern is "Anniversary Stars" from Evelyn Sloppy's book 40 Fabulous Quilts, c. 2005.

    Finished with the binding today and had the help of my DH to get it hung in it's place of honor.

    Happy 4th of July everyone!

    Very nice, that pattern would also make a good wounded soldier quilt. You did a good job.

    You just gave me an idea! I have that book, too (don't you LOVE it?!?!) & I make QOV's, so that would be a perfect fit. This quilt is just spectacular & perfect for the 4th! Kudos on finishing a UFO!

    Love it. I think it can hang there all year and be appropriate.

    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.
