Right before I was going to get married, my mom and I visited the lqs. We were looking for fabrics to make me a quilt; a wedding quilt/present. We had help from the store manager picking out coordinating fabrics. This was before I knew anything about quilting. I was marrying someone who was in the service, so I thought it would be kinda fun to have a star/patriotic quilt. Before a wedding, is a busy busy time. This start quilt never got made. Fast forward 4 years later. I now know some things about quilting, and had made a few quilts. I was at my moms for the summer, and I found the stash of fabric that we bought for this quilt. I enlisted her help to finish the star quilt. It was going to be really big, so we decided to pick out a few more colors, and make two quilts. One for her, and one for me. We got the tops all made. I finished her quilt just in time for a quilt contest, over at piece n quilt, and I finished my quilt about a year later. On my quilt, I tried to do a smaller stippling then usual for me. And I did a fun zigzag around the blue border, to coordinate with the star points. This quilt is a big one. It quilted up pretty fast for me. And I love it.
Here are some more pictures of the quilt.
I put a maroon gingham on the back.
Here is the quilt again, and my moms on the right.
She got all the scraps for her border, isn't it fun?
