Joe loved it and asked me if I could "make it bigger" so that it fit our bed. I went back to the shop the week after Christmas and bought more fabric. I added a border of sawtooth stars and an 8-inch (rather than the 6-inch border called for) and now it fits our bed. I finished yesterday. (We have a waterbed, and when I make quilts, I don't make them with a drop.)
Biloxi "inspected" it while I was putting on the binding. I include this photo so you can see the awesome multi-color star fabric I used on the back.
We love it! A perfect quilt for beating the blahs of January/February!
