Marcie's Scrappy Star Baby Quilt

Thought I would share with you one of Marcie's quilts I finished this past week.


Marcie's baby quilt had nice open spaces to show custom quilting. The outer border is a 1" checkerboard squares...oodles of them. The colors are wonderful with lots of my favorite civil war fabrics.

It's a keeper! Bummer not mine to keep.

I really like the secondary stars that show up in your quilting. Ties with the pieced blocks perfectly. Lovely as always.

Very nice! I can never figure out if the color choice/piecing compliments the quilting or if it is the other way around. Who cares? Both look great in this quilt.
