Last April I took a class from Bonnie Hunter using her Boxy Star pattern.
It was supposed to be scrappy, but I had to have a little control! I just
finished it in time to give my 3 year old grandson for Christmas. You can
see it on page 10 of my Webshots. If you go to Bonnie's website, you can
see it in other color ways. Sometimes you see the stars, and sometimes you
see the boxes. I kind of got carried away with the border.....it was almost
as much work as the quilt.
WOWWWWW!!!! That border was worth the extra effort, I think. It really
frames the quilt in the best possible way. I see stars in some blocks and
boxes in others- depends on the contrast in the fabrics.

Isn't it just really something how you can take a very nice quilt, add a
stunning border and move it to spectacular? I very seldom take the time to
border a crib quilt but am always tickled with the special framing they do.
( Learned that when some of my beginner paintings went from 'okay' to much
better with just the right frame.) How in the world can that grandbaby son
be three? When did that happen? Polly
Great quilt Alice. I really like it. If the border took some extra
work, it was entirely worth it. Your grandson will be thrilled (and in
years to come, too, as it is not in the least 'girly'!)

I'm so glad you said that....about the girly! I was a little worried, but
it doesn't have florals, or anything, either. I'm sure he won't appreciate
it now, but hope that he will some day. His brother is getting the red,
white and blue log cabin quilt also pictured in my Webshots.
