This was truly a labor of love making this. I now have one more quilt to make for my son's dorm room. I just want my kids to feel like mom and dad are with them, holding them when they curl up in their blankets.
|The color of the blades look brownish here, but they are actually red with gold in them|
|Each end of the quilt has a red strip of material and I placed four stars in each panel. The white pattern here is the star I used to trace around. (I pulled the star off the Internet.)|
|I also added anchors to the boarders. This is actually the same anchor pattern my daughter used for her Navy fondant cake. I just pulled it off the computer then traced around it also with tailors chalk.|
|If you look closely at the curved piece of binding I used a decorative stitch|
to sew it down to the quilt.
