It is also the first quilt I made entirely for myself. Extra long lap/nap quilt and I love it! (I have since found myself choosing lots of fabric I "can't resist", with no concrete plan. Finding that to be a common theme for quilters.)
Anyway, I love the retro teal or aqua & brown/dots and paisley. The block is called a "sailor's star" and I named the quilt MINT CHIP after my favorite ice cream, (yum).
The backing fabric is the inverse of the brown stars on the front. And now that it's finally getting cold here, it's getting lots of use!
Hope you have a terrific, thankful week!
