Kari and Eli's quilt

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
See this stack of Hunters Stars , there are 30 in that stack and i  decided to make 6 more.
I have already made 3 of the 6 but haven't got a picture of the 33th

These are the two i made yesterday and i nearly made one more.
I spread them out on the bed and when i get them all together it may not cover the bed top so six more. today i will finish up the other 3 and lay it out and see how it looks best.
Them i will square them all up and began putting them together.
Kari ordered me some 'Camo' fabric for the borders and it should be here today.
Just as i typed that the FedEx truck pulled up with it.
This picture is not true to the colors , i think i will wash it and get it ready to sew on later this week.I should look good because it has all the colors that i have put into the top. the colors are much brighter in the real thing!  It shouldn't fade because i have never gotten any from Walmart that did.  The only fabric that faded with me came from Hancock's so i don't buy there any more. The only think i hate about what i bought there is that i made Gracie's quilt out of part of it, the purple faded after i washed it.
Got to get busy.  I am down to scraps making these last blocks , using every bit of the 6 yards i bought!
Have a great sewing day all my old and new friends.
Quilt Happy

The stars are beautiful and can't wait to see it put together with all of the camo fabric. The camo looks like the real tree type so it will look fabulous!
