    Wow, thanks so much Jan. This is amaizing! I always loved the card trick pattern and once did a few blocks, but the triangles were so time consuming that I never did do enough of them to create a top. Did you post a pick of your quilt? If you did I missed it in the tread. Again...thanks!

    Hi Jan so nice to see you and glad to see the tute. I am going to try my hand at it and see how it comes out, one never knows till they try right? :-). Good to see you!
    Maybe the star you are aiming for isn't as bright as it seems until we look for the light that shines from within. God created us all to be stars in our right.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful instructions with diagrams. The only thing missing was the size of the end triangles and the 4 corner blocks. How large should I cut them? This is a hundred times easier than the pattern I had with half-square and quarter square triangles. I knew the board would come through for me.

    Thanks, Jan. I've printed it out and put it in my "Quilt Fun" notebook.

    On another project: I'm trying to make a Checkered Dresden from MSQC. I bought the template and watched the video about 5 times. I reached into the stash and picked out a Jelly Roll from Northcott named Opal. I started sewing 4 strips together and my seams are great. But when I measured the 4 piece strip sets, I had anywhere from 7 1/2 inches to 8 inches. I need 8 1/2. So it was then that I heard the voice of my mentor in my head. "All precuts are not cut correctly". Somehow the: measure before you start....was not in my head. I got the roll about 2 years ago from ???? The whole project is just sitting there. Now what? The strips actually measure 2 3/8ths.

    I suppose I could rip out all the seams and sew them so that I get 8 1/2. What do you think? Marcia
