    Yesterday I posted a pic of a carpenter's star quilt top that was about 43" square. With encouragement from several of you to make it into a lap quilt or a throw, it is now about 63" x 76 and will make a nice sofa throw after I quilit it. ;)

    I started with a carpenter's star and made up this layout as I went along, using only fabrics from my stash. I usually plan things out very carefully before I start, but this was an exercise in creativity for me.

    I love being able to bounce ideas around with all of you!

    That's a very nice one, good job you did on it.
    It would look nice in my front room too.

    Wasn't it supposed to look like this? I really like it.
