I was asked to do a quilt with burgundy, hunter green, and cream (those are their bedroom colors) and they wanted queen size to fit the bed. Woo! Shoving a queen sized quilt through my little domestic machine to quilt was a real treat!! I was sent a picture of what he liked for style and it happened to be the Ohio Star block. One of my favorites! I got working on math and figured it out and this is the result:

|This is on my full sized bed for scale.|
|The Ohio Star block is one of my absolute favorites!!|
|Neo posing with the center of the quilt top. This is why my tags say "Meig made, Neo approved," he lays next to me or under the table while I work so he really is just as much a part of the creative process as I am! Best coworker ever!|
|I used thick borders to make the quilt large enough without making the blocks too big. I really love the way these different sized borders pull the whole thing together.|
I used hunter green broadcloth for the backing - it was so nice to be able to piece the back so quickly with the 108" broadcloth. I will definitely be going for that for future quilts!
