    I am not a fan of Civil War fabrics...but I may have just changed my mind! This is a great quilt, and I love the stars within stars - you got the level of contrast just right so your eye floats over the quilt and doesn't get stuck anywhere. And I have now learned that "flying geese" isn't just when you put the units nose to tail, as I always thought. Cool!

    As for your LAer: my theory is that she wants to buy the quilt from you... You'll be rich! Rich, I say!!!

    Civil War fabrics are my weakness so you KNOW I love, love, love this! It's great & I can see why you LAer was impressed... I am, too! What sizes are your star blocks? This pattern is just perfect for your fabrics... gorgeous!

    Lovely quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    The blocks are 12 1/2". The pictures weren't clear. I take horrible pictures. I use my cell phone. But thank you for saying nice things about my quilt. Now, I have to bind it. And I won't say "hate", but binding is something I would rather never ever do. I actually pay people to do my binding. I'm so bad. My LQS owner bound my last quilt. She machine binded it with a flower stitch, so I am going to try that. If it looks bad, I'll pay someone to do it again. I like putting the quilt together but not quilting or binding. I'm not an all around quilter yet.

    All of the above and may I add that I love the combinations you used in each star. I, too, love the CW fabrics. Great quilt!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Beautiful quilt. I can see why she would say that...look at the points on all your stars.
