Grandpa Neal's Quilt

Quilt for Grandpa Neal's 90th birthday. Everyone in the family wrote a message on a square of fabric, and I quilted them together with some other blocks representing his life and hobbies.

I could not find a pattern for the Navy Star, so I used paper piecing and a neat circle trick to make my own.

The golf scene is appliqued, the anniversary date and Ohio block are cross stitched.
