Didn't think I would get this one finished today.  
But did.  
Will soon be in the shop.

These two photos show the quilt back on the Gammill longarm quilter to free motion quilt the star. This was after I cut off all the threads from the straight line quilting and squared up the quilt.  

Another day here in the Ozarks with the sun peaking thru for a short time this morning I still got out and hung the quilt on the line for photos this afternoon and they weren't too bad.  We need sun.

I used two different chambrays in this quilt.  A light weight poly/cotton chambray to frame/sash the squares.  A mig-weight cotton chambray used on the back. Both were thrifted pieces.

Straight line quilting was done everywhere but for the star.  That was quilted with a meandering free motion quilting, my favorite. Can you see the fmq star design in the photo above? A chambray blue thread was used for the quilting.

This was bound with pieced binding to pick up the patchwork from the front framed squares and to add interest to the large spaces of chambray on the back.

All that is left to do is to add the quilt label, wash and dry.
