A couple of years ago when joining an online group called "Quilted with Love", I joined a swap that was to make stars out of blue with a tan background. Of course I made more than I needed. I kept looking for a fabric that would go with what I picked and never found just what I wanted. They've sat in a drawer for 2 years.
Then I got some stars from a birthday block swap and added them to the stash and since I've been in a "stringing" mood lately, I made some 9 1/2" blocks from strings.
The quilt top measures 55 1/2 inches by 75 inches with 5 squares across and 7 down. There's a 2 inch and a 4 inch border to complete the top.
