Finished Star quilt

Finally I have a finish on my star quilt; it's about 68x84", give or take. I collected blocks from both the 12" and the 6" groups as well as from a friend outside the group. A big thank you to everyone who contributed. Sorry for the wonky picture but I'm limited for space here and the weather is too messy to take it outside just now.  I'm really happy with how it turned out and it's already gone to it's new home with my son.

Its heartwarming to see a lovely quilt made with blocks collected in the swaps, and this one is from two swaps so even more special. And it is a spectacular quilt, well done on this gorgeous finish.

What a great quilt. I love that you mixed the two sizes together. A lovely mix of blocks and fabrics too!
