Thank you, everyone who offered advice about borders for the scrappy stars quilt. I did cave in and buy more dark blue fabric. In the meantime I found an idea for a pieced border. I haven't started it yet -- you'll need to tune in next week.
Cindy and her daughter Jeannie came over to pick up the pillowcases that I made. Cindy generously paid more than I asked. She gave me the leftover fabric, which weighed 4.5 lbs (18 yards). They also brought more fabric from which I made four pillowcases and the cover for a dog bed.
I'm linking up with other quiltmakers at Patchwork Times.
