Don’t they look so pretty up there? The girls had a lot of leeway with design on these–I asked for blocks featuring triangles & squares & I received such wonderful variety from everyone. After receiving them, I decided to add a small gray border to each. The blocks were so varied, both in design and in size, so I really wanted to add a bit of cohesiveness and at the same time size them all the same. Since the designs were so different I also wanted them to appear as mini quilts within the larger design. I think framing them worked perfectly. I have one more block to receive and one that I still need to add the gray to & I’m gonna make at least one more block if not more. I would really like to incorporate a couple more stars into the finished quilt.
