    Love the quilt and the colors. Someday maybe I'll try a mystery quilt. They sound like fun.

    Here's mine, if I can figure out how to attach the pictures. I had no problem figuring out her instructions...she's so precise in her explanations that it makes it very easy to follow...lots of little pieces, but worth it. I spent 3 full weeks making it and it's all scraps except for the white on cream for the background, and the burgundy and navy blenders...the rest of it are paisley prints in the navy and burgundy families. It's so scrappy that I had to randomly piece more paisleys for the borders. I'm going to give it to my grandson when he graduates in 4 years! YEA! I'm ahead of the game for once!!!

    what size did yours finish at? and can you add more blocks to enlarge it? i looked for a finished block size but didn't see that info. what is yours?

    would you call it intermediate or advanced? i know you're advanced but i'm not, so i'm thinking this may be too difficult for me without ripping my life away.

    last question (i'm really picking your brain today): she talks about shirting on this one and other ones in the past. does she really mean men's shirts, which are tightly woven, or women's shirtings which are really like other cotton fabrics, only striped? i find men's shirtings to be almost like sheets.
    butterflywing: I did mostly do the steps in order and started a few days before the New Year.

    Mine finished at 74" x 87" once I added 5" borders. You could certainly make more blocks if you wanted the quilt bigger. And/or add more or larger borders. The finished blocks are 9".

    I'm only a beginner, but I didn't find the pattern very hard. Challenging for a beginner, but Bonnie's instructions are very helpful.

    I believe the shirtings she is referring to are reproduction of men's shirts from the Civil War era. Someone else on the board may have a clearer description.

    On a side note, Bonnie does have a great book that explains how she repurposes old cotton shirts, etc. to make her quilts. http://quiltville.com/scrapsandshirttailspreview.shtml

    Thanks for all the comments quilters, you make me :oops: !
    thank you for the answers. i every time i se a great quilt i want to do it. of course, no one has the time to do them all, but i would love to do this one. you've done a really terrific job.
