More JTAAW photos

Edit - Thursday at 5pm - I was just about to write tomorrow's FF post when I realized this was sitting here as a draft...no wonder no one commented on it yesterday. oops...

I hope these are the close up photos all y'all were looking for on Monday...

This is my version of Bonnie's Jared Takes an Wife - except mine is an Asian wife due to the Asian fabrics :)

I left the sashing out of the quilt center, enjoying the secondary pattern created, but then decided the quilt needed to be bigger so I switched the fabrics around on the outer "border". The quilt is now 72" x 84".

I switched red for part of the black star points (and that is partly because after adding the black that I did add to the outer border there is only a 6" square of it left!) and I altered the star center fabrics.

Last time I posted on this, people spoke up that it should be yellow in the centers. I cut some yellow and some green and tried them both. The yellow center with yellow star points was just too much for me so I relegated those to the corners and used green centers on the sides of the quilt. Howz that for a good compromise?

Sorry for crinkly quilt photos - between the grass that needs trimming and little furry feet, it was the best I could do...
