I'm excited! Here's the center section of the red star quilt. It seems huge to me, but will be bigger, and rather less red, I think. I have to square off, do the math to figure out how wide the narrow framing red piece will be, and then how wide the yellow strip will be, and frame all the little stars, and then plan the applique on the yellow ring.

Kay-I am loving the look of that quilt! It already feels like it has a lot of "history"-what a great effect.

I also checked out your photos on the Stitchin Fingers page-wonderful!

Thanks again for the great post!

OMG I'm soooo in love with this and I really dig the way you did the sashing strips,t oo. Really neat! The way this is going to come together has me on the edge of my seat.

Front Row Seat to Love, *karendianne.

I'd be redundant to say yet again how much I love this quilt. Let me just say I've saved the photo to my file of inspiration quilts. It's exquisite.
