Maverick Star

I finished my first maverick star today so I could send it off to Amanda Jean for her Quilts of Valor Project. It was pretty easy to make and now that I've made one, I think it would be a lot easier to make a bunch more. The fact that all the star points are different sizes is fun, and I like that every star you make can turn out looking different. If you want to read a tutorial on how to make your own Maverick Stars, click here. I'm honored that I was able to help Amanda Jean for such a wonderful cause. All of the wounded soldiers that receive these quilts have made such a sacrifice for our country, and I hope whoever receives this one feels lots of love whenever he/she uses it.
