Maverick Stars Quilt

This quilt was started in February this year and is another that was abandoned, partly due to time and partly due to being undecided about the next border.
I was really pleased with it when I first made it so I do really want to get it to the quilting stage as it will be great for practising my machine quilting and also it will make a great quilt for a child. It would be lovely to have some quilts 'in hand' for when a gift is needed.

The stars are a Bonnie Hunter design from quiltville.com, they are made from a selection of 2 inch squares.
This was where I had got to in February and stopped. This was 25 inches square. First I decided I wanted a rectangular quilt not a square.
So I have added sections to each end, this now measures approx 25 x 33 inches. Next border coming soon! Luckily I have found all the fabrics I was using!

I'm so happy for you Janet, you seem to have taken to quilting and you have an eye for it....
Whereas me... no hope! I don't like anything I do and it definitely never looks as good as anything you do!I'm depressed, big time!! My Maverick Squares is stuffed in a box...

I love your quilt Janet. The additions on the end make it. They add interest I think. A really lovely design.
