Christmas Quilt

The original quilt was made for me by a family friend when I was a baby. Over the years of use, it acquired a large blue ink stain on it. My cousin took out the portion that was stained, and put in it's place, the star block that you see, and added new borders to replace the ruffles that had been there before.
Now I'm re-quilting the top with a fresh backing and new cotton batting to replace the old puffy polyester filling. I did stitch in the ditch for the majority of it, but I may add in some free motion quilting in the star, and a bit more quilting along the squares.
