Now that my swap with Jacey is complete, I can definitively say that I got the better end of the deal. I adore wonky stars. I've made several in my day but somehow I've never kept anything for myself. I just love the colors that she chose. They perfectly coordinate with my new living room color scheme. the blue thread she used is awesome and a standout for me is that each section is quilted differently.
i really love the back too. i think i will need to rotate it periodically so that the back can shine. this mini cheers me up considerably when i look at it hanging on my quilt wall. yay swapping!
