So I finally finished the quilt that I started for my brother's wedding...two years ago.  But they loved it, so all's well that ends well.  I got the pattern from "Royal Stars of the States" by Eula Long.  This woman drafted a star pattern for each of the 50 United States.  This is Virginia.  

Most of the fabrics are from my Grandma's stash that I inherited.  

If you can't tell, their favorite colors are green and turquoise.  The fabric for the background and backing are the same as the center medallion.

I've also made Ohio (my profile pic) and Utah, each for a sibling's wedding, each over a year late.  Maybe I'll start another now, even though the two left don't have prospects, yet. =)

(My apologies for the tiny pictures.  Any suggestions on making them show larger?)

This is gorgeous!  I would go cross-eyed trying to do something this intricate. ^_^

There is nothing on earth more entertaining than watching a pack of half-grown puppies playing in snow for the very first time.

It isn't really that intricate, lissablair.  There are just some busy prints all right next to each other.  I looked through my stash and pulled out anything that was green or turquoise in any incarnation.  Then I decided how best to place them so the colors next to each other kinda' went together.  And all the crazyness suits my brother's personality.
