Mom's Mariner's Compass Quilt center

I finally finished making 50 Ohio Star blocks for the border around my sister's Mariner's Compass on the quilt that we are making together for our mother. I am very pleased with the outcome.  Sadly, this picture does not show the colors as well as I'd like. Now Mary needs to add a couple of large plain borders to get the finished top to the correct size for a double bed.  Oh, yes, and then she gets to quilt it on her longarm quilting machine.
