This is a charity quilt made from BOM blocks that I won last winter. It will be donated as a comfort quilt to our local children's charity. The pattern uses 1/2 snowball blocks to form a slanted star. You have to look closely, but they are there. The body of the star is light, while the 6 points are the colored triangles. It's 40 x 56.
I changed the look of the quilt with the quilting. By adding lines and filling in triangles, I change the star to a broken dishes block.
Thanks to Judi Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts for her great instruction in the classes that I took at the AQS quilt show in Paducah last April.

I continued the quilting pattern in the border:
I found the backing at an estate sale. It's perfect for a children's quilt.
The words follow the tune of Row Row Row your Boat:
Brush, brush, brush your teeth
Gently till they gleam.
Flossing, flossing, flossing, flossing
Now your smile's a dream.
