Carol's Blue Embroidered Stars

Carol's husband does all the embroidery work on these blocks while she puts the quilts together.  Sounds like a good trade to me!  

I outlined each row of the star and the center star.  Then I went around the outside with a McTavish/banana type filler.  For the sashing I changed to a navy thread and tried a new (to me) design I saw in an old Dawn Cavanaugh article about tiny borders I had ripped from a magazine.  (Fons & Porter perhaps?)  I really like how it turned out, although it was tricky figuring out how to turn the corner with it.  

The back!

Ta daa!  Or, as my little guy likes to say: "Daaa!"
