    Yankee Star

    That's what I'm calling this one. A friend of ours has mentioned a few times that he's the only one that doesn't have a quilt yet. He's a huge Yankees baseball fan so this is going to be his quilt. I love the way it came out.

    The pattern name is "Seeing Stars" but I don't know if you can buy it anymore since it's about 12 years old.

    I'll take it to a longarm quilter next week.

    This looks good enough to be a wall hanging! Great use of fabrics and the way you put the colours together.

    He is going to be thrilled with it! My son is a huge Yankees fan and I can just imagine how happy he would be to receive such a quilt. Great work.

    You did a great job playing with the patterns in the star. At first glance it looks like the same fabric and then once you look at it more you can see the differences. It makes the view stare and think about it (which is a fantastic thing!).

    Beautiful. Where did you find that center medallion?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
