    Quilt finally back from the quilter. Was hard to take a pic it was so large. Also some close ups of a few blocks. Totally glad it is finished.

    that is truly amazing! I would have never attempted anything like that. If you don't enter this in the local quilt shows you are crazy. You should be very proud

    Pokerdiva, Your quilt came out beautiful!!! Can I ask...did you have one common print used in all the blocks then worked out from there? I think I see some of the colorful print in all of the blocks in some areas. Is that right?

    The border fabric is in all of the blocks. If I had to do it again I would have chosen a smaller print but in the end it turned out good.

    Florence that is absolutely beautiful. Did you have to get more fabric for the border or did you plan for that. I knew when you posted a block because I recognized your "purple" flowers.

    PokerDiva, What a beauty! I know your print was a big one, but the colors in that print were so beautiful that you couldn't go wrong with it. I agree, it should definitely be put in a show. Thanks for the extra closeups for the quilting. It looks like every star is different. If you feel like it sometime, I would love to see some closeups of the back to see how the patterns look on the back, if they show up.

    Sue, the back is a dark blue batik and the quilting doesn't show very well. I should say that Charismah, here on the board, quilted it and she did do each star different.

    Wow Florence I love yours. I am still waiting on mine to come back from the longarmer. I thought she would be finished by now. SHe does have some health issues and that delays her sometimes. I was going to give her another week before I called her. I continue to pop over to this thread from time to time to see all of the progress.

    We posted our blocks every Sunday. Some were scattered through the week though. There is no central place for the block pics. Sorry.
