Star "Quilt"

I was blog surfing to some of my favorites today and realized I am way behind in challenges. So I searched for some that I could combine.

So here is what I came up with.
If you live anywhere near Amish areas, you know they are excellent quilters. And frequently they use bright colors on black backgrounds. So I punched out the ROYGBIV stars (minus the Indigo) and put them on black cardstock. I used a white pencil to make the "quilt" lines. I am no better making straight, small stitches with a pencil than I am with needle and thread. The stars were a little blah just plain so I used some letter stickers to spell HELLO!
