2016 Finished Quilts - Star Skill Builder - Quilt 12

This is another "counter BOM" put on by my local quilt shop.  This is a sampler of star blocks made into a standard three by four block layout with a small block sashing.  The colors are a muted peach and brown tones.    

Close up of the borders.

Backing is a tiny gingham peach print that I picked up at Goodwill one day.  It works perfect for the back of this quilt.

Close up of some of the star blocks used in the quilt.  Also gives you a look at the framing and sashing of the quilt.

Looks pretty boring in the pictures, but actually it is rather calming because the colors blend together so well.
