Here's the center sewn together. I've placed a bit of black around the sides to audition it as a small inner border. Below are up close pics of the two corners. The top one has a more cherry red color. The bottom one is actually the color used in the stars -- more of a deeper burgundy.
Hum, I'm not sure the color differences are going to show up. Any one want to give me your 2 cents on which color? I'm thinking the black will be about 1" finished. The outer border will be about 2" finished. The blocks are 4" finished so it isn't really very big. It will fit on a small hanger in the great room that gets different quilts throughout the year. This will work well for patriotic holidays.
Here's the scoop on my goals last week. Let's just say it was a pretty good week.

One problem that came up is the long arm isn't working correctly. I received a new chip to put into it. Here's the old one on the left and the new one on the right. Hum . . . it looks to me it is missing a section on the left side. I wonder if that is why it isn't working. Sigh. Hopefully tomorrow tech help can get a new one in the mail to me. And, I had hoped to get Celebrate quilted this week. Probably not going to be done, thus left off the goals list. Hopefully I'll get Ruthie up and running this week if the new part can come in fast enough...
I'm done for now. Don't forget to visit these linky parties to see what folks are working on this week. Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Main Crush Monday, and Moving It Forward. Some of the links will need to be done tomorrow. But I hope you will spend some time checking them out.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
