    Candi, Yours looks great. I haven't been able to work on mine at all. I have to finish my Autumn Boom 6 first also my doll quilt for this month. Besides working on my quilt for quilters due in July. I do still have it on my display wall and it really keeps me going to get to it again. If you look close at my points some are off but I still love it.

    Beautiful work. Very nicely done.

    Did you do 1/4 seams or scant? I can relate to those fairly easy. Bonnie talks about adjusting seams which is somewhat confusing for me. I have a long long way to go on mine. The first step is done. The string blocks are also done and I have all of the cutting completed. Now its the assembly. That's the reason for my questions on the seams.
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    So far I have used all 1/4" seam, but I think the adjusting of seams may be when the blocks are assembled. There are so many seams that it would be easy to get them off just a tiny bit and this could require the adjusting of seams.

    I would use the rule of the galloping horse. Rule says:

    Hang up your quilt. Ride by 6 feet away on a galloping horse. If you can't see the problem, then it doesn't need to be fixed.

    I finally finished all my large string blocks and now I am working on part 7 - adding to the large string blocks. I am about half way finished with this.

    I love that quote. How hilarious!

    Well, I have the quilt all sewn together except for the borders. Working on the pieced border and trying to decide if I want to put a blue or white inner border on the quilt. I think a blue would bring out the blue string blocks. There is a photo of a quilt with a blue border on Yahoo Quiltville Chat site that really struck my fancy! Decisions, decisions!!!

    Thanks. Now there are times I am picky about matching or points but I try to never obsess about it. I will never be a perfectionist and since most of my friends don't even sew they are usually blown away by my efforts.

    Besides of which, I figure if my friends are going to point these things out then maybe I need new friends (HA HA).

    Jeanie: Really like your idea of changing the inner border on the quilt. Since my strings are green, I will try that and see what I think. My guess is it will really make the center pop. We are almost at the same place, I have four of the eight rows sewn together. Congrads!

    Just beautiful Sue! I love the colors. I've just got to add the borders and my flimsy will be done. Mine is awfully bright, as I did Bonnie's colors!

    Red face Components complete. Now for Layout.

    I finally completed piecing all the components. I decided to try to different partial layouts - one like Bonnie's layout and one with the large strings surrounding the light background Ohio Stars.

    Now I have to decide which I like the best.

    Sue, I LOVE your quilt! You did a wonderful job on it. Beautiful quilting too.

    Lakekids, wow! Love your colors, orange is a favorite color of mine as is purple and together they are awesome! You really can't go wrong with either layout.

    My units are all done too, and I am assembling my top, I am doing it in four sections instead of rows hoping it'll be squarer for me this way, lol. Of course, I am chopping so many points off as I go too, lol.

    Well I am trailing along. I just have the last row to attach and then the borders. I don't care how outclassed I am by all of your interpretations, I am going to post as soon as I get to that point.
    Some of you have been mysteriously silent about your progress. Come on fess up about your progress. We also want pictures.
