Papa John's Lone Star Quilt

I wanted to post a picture of the quilt I made for my mama's husband for Christmas:

The pattern is called a Lone Star, and the technique I used for the top and bottom borders is called Seminole piecing.

I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.  I'm particularly happy with the way the darker values create a kind of Celtic knot snowflake effect; I haven't seen a lone star quilt with that coloring scheme before.
