Quilt Progress

I've been busily working on the Lone Star quilt for the past couple of weeks, being extra careful with it since I'm getting paid to make it.

This is how the quilt looks right now with two of the borders on. 

Today I'll be starting the third border.  It's going to be quite wide since this quilt needs to be the size of a queen bedspread.  Also, since the star can't be part of what's tucked under the pillows, the top border will be even wider than the bottom and side borders.  The fabric has subtle hints of the orange in it, but is mainly dark similar to the reddish radiant.

The person I'm making it for came yesterday to look at the progress, and she's pleased with how it's coming along, which of course makes me happy.
