A Star Spangled Finish

Lots of scrappy maverick stars quilted with a simple stipple and bond with a red check and my Star Spangled quilt is finished.
It made a little dent in my red, white and blue scraps.  I had left over binding from another project and it was almost enough to go all the way around.  I found another red check to finish the lower right had corner.  The check is smaller but I think it adds a nice touch to this scrappy quilt.  I'm thinking it will be the perfect gift for a child so I'm adding it to the Happy Chemo pile.  
Watch the quiltometer rise!

  7. I do love quilts that give the recipient a lot to look at and think about it a difficult time. Your quilt can pleasantly occupy someone for quite a while!
