    That's a really beautiful quilt. I like the organized scrappiness of it & love the borders you used to accent the scrappy stars.

    This is fabulous! I really love it.The stars mean more when there's a limited number and that last border looks like a picture frame.When I first looked at it I thought it was actually in a wooden frame. Congratulations on a superb creation

    Great job getting the border fabric lined up straight and mitering the corners.

    I got tired of making the stars but needed to make it bigger, so just started adding to it. I had the 4 patches from previous leaders and enders, so that border was quick to make. And the last border (stripe fabric) was found in a bag of scraps meant for dog bed stuffing that was given to me ( I usually go through the scraps because as you see you never know what you might find ) and it was already cut to the size you see! just had to sew together into the lengths needed. Pretty lucky for that. this top measures about 56 x 70.
    This is gorgeous! So stunning.

    This is what I love about this board. I open a thread and a quilt makes me happy just to look at it.
    Fabulous job with both stars and borders.

    Bright, colorful and nicely scrappy

    Amazing! This is really quite the colorful quilt...done tastefully, of course! Is it for you? I'd find this one difficult to give to anyone!

    I love the borders on this one. Gives me ideas to make some of mine larger.
    But I really love the stars. What a neat idea to make the center triangles of strips of the same colorway.
