Stars and Camouflage Quilt



He said the front of the quilt could be anything but he wanted the back to be digital army camouflage. Because I couldn't decide what to do for the front, this grandchild has been waiting a year for his camouflage quilt.
I have a box of pieced red, white and blue 10.5" star blocks. So I pulled and sewed together 48 of them for the quilt top.
It looks good all quilted with horizontal wavy lines. The binding is dark red. After a round in the washer and dryer, it finished a little over 80" x 60".
I'll be making more red, white and blue stars for future star quilts. I still want to make one for his father. Hopefully with no camo.

Yes, nicely done with the stars and size - and the camo doesn't sell me either, but that's the request and you filled it.

Great quilt. I love all the variety in your red, white, and blue fabrics. It's great that you fulfilled your grandson's request for the camo fabric. I'm sure he is going to love it.

I made a camo quilt for someone once. Not my first choice in fabric either but they loved the end result. Im sure your grandson will too.

Oh boys, aren't they something!? :) The quilt looks beautiful, even with camo. I really like the top, one of my favorite color combinations and starts.
