I recently participated in round 3 of the Quilt Block swap and this time around I asked for the Friendship Star pattern with a black background and colorful stars. Our friend's daughter is graduating high school this month and I wanted the squares for a quilt for her. Once they had arrived, I found out what her favorite color was to use in the border and off I went.
When I had the squares together and only 1/2 the border on I almost quit because I didn't like how it was turning out but once I had the rest of the border on I was happy with it.
I gave it to Alyssa on Tuesday and she loved it, which made me very happy.
I even personalized it - I told her I did this so that if she didn't like it, she couldn't give it away
