Lone Star Number Seven - Don

Even though this was a secret project and I kept it all hidden from the kids all the years I was working on the ten Lone Star Quilts, Don did  know about it.  It would have been impossible to get this many quilts done without him seeing something going on - so I let him in on the secret - but I kept part of the secret from him.  He thought he was getting a blue quilt - and instead I made a green one for him - and he was  very pleased and surprised.

Piles of greens .  .  .

Top finished - without borders

With a border - bears and feathers 

Quilted and bound

Ben photo bombing - but that's ok - I love any chance to capture the grandsons on photos.  He's officially a third grader now.

Don with his quilt .  .  . he really was happier than this photo shows.
