It's actually from a kit my mom sent me while I was working on cruise ships. It's a little too "happy" for me, but I'm really excited about it for the following reasons:

-it's a rectangle
-though the quilting is totally messed in a million places, it looks great! (it's just quilted in diagonal squares)
-the binding came out really well thanks to a video how-to on youtube
-it's replacing my fiance's ugly-ass mexican blanket that's all pil-y with the warp showing

Thanks for looking!

It's gorgeous. The colors are very springlike and classic, and I'm jealous of the perfect points on your stars. Beautiful!

Aww, Gillian's just showing off with all her sharp, pointy points ...   Grin

Really, tho, fantastic job (says the quilter whose points are NEVER sharp) !
