The second photo below is the assembled quilt top of patriotic stars that were the result of a Block of the Month program at the Dallas quilt shop, Quilters Connection. I used different background than the designer recommended, and I changed some of the fabrics and designs. The twelve star blocks were interesting each month, but the challenge was all the red diamonds and sashing blocks--there are 48! I have purchased dark blue fabric for the backing, but it is currently hiding among all my other stash in my sewing room. I think my husband wants this quilt. It's almost a queen size.
