Super job, Mimi and what a wonderful gift for a hero's mother! I love how you sprinkled stars all around as well. Thank you for posting!

Thank you for your compliments, Courtenay -- and thank you for teaching that great class!

Oh, Courtenay, I wanted to let you know that the family refers to Sgt. Matthew Soper as "our big star in the sky", making your lone star all the more appropriate representation of him on this quilt -- the other stars are all the other family member -- parents, grandparents, siblings and nieces and nephews (the smallest stars surrounding the lone star).

What a striking quilt! The navy background really makes the stars pop. My son is serving his THIRD tour in Afghanistan. This is the kind of gorgeous quilt I want to make for him. He deserves the best quilt I can create for him. Thanks for sharing your quilt. Judith

Oh, my, Judith, all my prayers are with your son. I am sure he would love any quilt you might make for him... Please forward my sincere thanks to him for protecting all the freedom I and my family enjoys today. Over the century, my family and extended family have lost three military men. God bless you and all of yours. By the way, my two-sided quilt is a mixture of stars taught in three different Craftsy classes. Just use borders and sashing made of the background fabric (so to the 'eye' they all blend together, making it appear that all blocks are the same size) to make the blocks match other blocks where necessary.
