Second Buckeye Beauty quilt w/borders

I tried using the units I made for the Crabapple quilt. But since the center of the quilt is based on 4-patches I felt it did not do justice to the quilt. Never fear....I will use these for something yet!
Here is my choice. I decided to use the same size patches as in the center of the stars after I added a 2 1/2" cream border. Everything fit perfectly!

Now I think I need to add another row of patches to mimic the 16 patches in the centers.
But need to stop sewing for the day. I have a doctor's appointment....DARN!!!

I agree the second row would look like a row of 4-patches. Looking good.

I'm almost afraid to check your latest post because literally EVERYTHING you make is something I want to make also! Similar taste, apparently. This one is a winner - so friendly like. 8-))) Border is perfect!

You are so amazing! You finish SO MUCH!! I ove the Crabapple quilt (from Leaders & Enders right?) Did you finish that? How did I miss it! I'm going to have to go trolling through your back posts because I can't believe I missed that quilt. It's next on my list!
