Finished Bonnie Hunter quilt

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.
WAY cool!

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'!) . In message , Alice in PA writes

He's almost three, his brother is 6, and his cousin, the first girl in our family in 56 years, is 3 months! I can finally buy pink, pink, pink!

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.
