    Where can I buy that pattern? I looked last night for an hour and never did find a place that carries that pattern.
    thanks

    Love the bright, crisp colors against the white. Superb color choices. Thanks for sharing!

    I've had a few people looking for the pattern and when I looked at the actual pattern I have, it is spelled OMIGOSH. So, no H after the first O. Sorry about that. This is where I got it and it is well over half off from when I purchased it.

    http://www.quakertownonline.com/omig...ue-garman.html

    I've also had a few people asking about if it would work using their scraps. The background squares in the double nine patch need to be 2 inches in size and you need 2.5 inch squares for making the 4 patches on point. The colored pieces of the shoofly require 2 and 3 inch squares. The colored tiny squares in the 4 patches and the tiny 9 patches should start with 1 inch strips. I would want to have at least 7 to 11 inch strips.

    Personally, this is a huge undertaking and while I understand the desire to use your scraps, I would only do this if you have lots of available large "scraps". If you truly want to do this from small scraps, this will be a very long process and make the piecing process more difficult. However, you will have a really unique quilt. I think it is really about our dreams and what we desire. I am thrilled that a few people have said that they were happy just looking at my quilt. That is exactly what I have been hoping for. I know I got excited the first time I laid out all my fabrics to see how they looked together. It was a rainbow of happiness for me.

    My quilt is displayed on my "design wall" in my dining room (the only open wall with enough space). It is simply a full size batting tacked to the wall. Fabric just naturally will "stick" to the batting (some people use a sheet of flannel). However, it is only lightly stuck as I learned the sad way a few months ago (my daughter brushed up against it when I had my one block wonder on it and several half hexagons fell down and were sucked up into my Dyson before she even knew what happened). I found a few blocks this morning partially hanging off the wall so I will need to make sure to pat down the lose looking ones every day or so.

    I'll be glad to answer any other questions if you have them.

    Incredible! I used to make quilts like that (a kajillion pieces), but my eyes and patience have grown thin over the years. Keep up the fantastic work!
    To QUILT is human.
    To FINISH is divine.
