Jared Progress

Well, here's what I decided to do for my center square (boy, that sounds like Tic-Tac-Toe) on my Jared quilt.  I've got 5 blocks totally together and 3 more 85% together.  If I get to work on it tonight, I'll have 8 done.  I'm not sure how many I'll end up with.  I was thinking 12 (3 x 4), but I'm thinking of not using sashing anymore and letting the chains butt against each other.  So maybe I'll end up needing more.

Regardless, I'm still loving this block and the fabric I picked.

Have a great day!

Need Your Opinion

I started on a Jared Takes a Wife from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville.com site.  I need your opinion on which fabric to use for the center of the star in my blocks. 
Center is the same as the star "arms"

Star center is the same as the star points

Star center is a lighter shade from the star arms
(sashing is a darker version of this fabric)

Please leave your comment as to your choice.  I need to start cutting centers in a day or two, so your fast response would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Evan's Quilt Done

While I was recuperating, the quilt I made for my nephew's high school graduation got quilted and when I got home all I had to do was sew on the binding.  Yes, I got it done on time and presented it the day after his graduation.  He seemed to really like the colors and he and his mother started talking about what color sheets he should get for his bed at college to go with it.  So, I think it was a hit!
