This is my top , I really enjoyed doing this one. I did make some minor changes, My stars every or row the square is  different shades of blue, an My inner border, I didn't have enough of the pale yellow  which is what it was suppose to be ,so I changed it to the dark mauve. I really liked the results .. Thanks you so much  Sandi for doing the and helping us all with this great  project...Barbara

Barbara:
My stars every or row the square is  different shades of blue,

I noticed the mauve for the border but didn't notice the star centers.  The blues are a perfect match.  I like the mauve better because it is darker and it ties the colors together better.  The yellow would have been too light.  I will use fabric 3 for this border but may add another narrow border of #6 (if I have enough) to better tie things together.  Maybe an outer border to match the binding also.  This is for our 6'4" grandson who is now in Iraq.  I think it needs to be a little larger for him.

Marsha , some of my stars have the same fabric as my outter border , I wanted to have some of that fabric in the quilt itself so I change d that on my stars.  Thanks for your kind comments on my quilt,  I also agree with you about the extra broder for you  grandson. HE will need it for the  height ... Barbara

Barbara, mine is for my 6yr old GD, and I am going to call it Neapolitan Ice Cream, that's what it reminded me of as soon as I started putting it together. I am almost done I will post as soon as I am.
