I cut a bunch of squares out of the star fabric and dark blue fabric. The medium blue fabric is also the border fabric so I want to cut the border pieces before I start cutting squares out of it. I'll do that tomorrow. The dark blue is also the fabric for the backing of the quilt.
The quilt is an Irish Chain quilt. I have made one before on a smaller scale for my nephew when he turned 1 and then for my niece when she turned 1. The dark squares in this sketch that criss cross across the quilt are the star fabric. The medium squares are the medium blue and the light squares are the dark blue.
