Jan, here it is! This is my first ribbon for a quilt (I’ve won 2 for blocks)…I was so excited! I was also very pleased with how it turned out since in class I liked most everyone’s colors better than my own! Thanks for a great class!   Deb Lockwood

Hi Jan, I am very excited to show you a picture of the top finished of the Lone Star Quilt I started in Boca Raton with you. I had e-mailed you about how to put it together, and I want to thank you for getting back to me.  I found the information I needed and finished it, but decided that it needed a border. 

It was difficult working with the octagonal shape, but I finally got it.  The border made all the difference.  I’m enclosing a picture for you to see.  I’m going to have Linda Wilson who was at the workshop and is a long arm quilter quilt it as I really don’t know what to do with the quilting part. Thanks a million.  I’ve committed to my daughter that I’ll make her a star quilt also.  I’m hooked!   Blessings, and thanks again,  Marlys Hasey Cordes
