Finished For Friday 14th.Sept.

This is a quilt that started life at quilt retreat last week and I set it aside weary of all the little nine patches. I pulled it out today and worked at it for a couple of hours, then went to the gym and later finished it off at about 11:30 pm!
The plan was for it to be a QOV but now I am wondering if it's too feminine, that outer border especially is floral. There are supposed to be stars in alternate gold blocks but I decided to forgo those, I really don't want to fuss with applique but maybe the stars would make it more masculine?
What is the consensus of opinion?

Great quilt. Remember there are female vets out there that would think it is awesome. Which it is. Dotti

Ros - I'd leave it as is as there are definitely female vets out there too ;-)

Definitely add a few stars! And why do we always think a man's quilt can not have any florals in it? The quilt is plenty masculine--border and all.
