    moonrise, beautiful quilts .... if I had to vote for just one, it would be the browns. It's amazing how one tutorial can produce so many beautiful scrappy quilts. I wasn't satisfied with mine so put it away; guess I'll get it out and work on it some more.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Here is my mystery quilt. The second one is made from all of the little triangles we cut off. I couldn't bear to throw them away. It is a doll quilt to donate to Salvation Army for their toys for tots program. I have really enjoyed the ride, thanks Judy.

    Here's my step 1 and 2. It took me days to cut a square from each of Grandma's fabrics. I should finish the last step tomorrow.

    first of two things: Judy when she gets back deserves a standing ovation. A simple pile of scraps we all wanted to use and well one day and one day and suddenly in just three short weeks we have ALL these amazing works of art. So mucho kuddos to Judy.

    Second: Stand up all of you. You took those dreaded pile of one days and turned them into real beauties. All different scraps some organized some random pics some regular stars some mixed colors (now that requires planning to get all those points perfectly matched with the right tops and bottoms). The end result is amazing. I think everyone stand up. look left and right and clap like there is no tomorrow for yourself and for your friends. This is what quilting together, even apart.. is all about. I love this forum even if I hated my quilt top. I will however use the lesson here on other quilts and I think that is a lovely gift. and the price? surely that was beyond right.

    Oh yes, I LOVE the red stars Chester! Jaba, yours looks so similar to mine, except mine isn't finished! I'm going with 4 squares wide and 5 long as well. It looks like your stars are a mottled dark brown, mine are black, but so similar. I love it!

    Elizabrat, You are are so right on both points. Thanks, and double thanks to Judy.
    All the scrappys are so great. I love yours, Pam. Meanmom, a sixteen-patch! Now that's scrappy.

    meanmom, Your 16 patches give the quilt a WOW factor. Sheri, cutting squares from yardage does take time, but your results were worth it. I like both quilts.

    Elisa, you're right, Judy does deserve a standing ovation.

    Judy posted this after she gave the last directions.

    Someone asked about different sizes of blocks. Sulabug used her 4" blocks -- she cut the squares for the flying geese at 2-1/4" square and the rectangle connecting sections at 4" x 11". Those who want to use 5" blocks, the geese squares would be 2-3/4" square and the rectangles 5" x 14"

    Here is my first top. I'm still working on two others. Three nieces are having babies within a few weeks of each other. This way, the quilts can be the same, but different also. Kudos Judy for a fun project!

    This has been a fun quilt to make, using up scraps I didn't know what to do with. I should have my top finished sometime today. I'm going to donate it to the Infusion Center at our local hospital when it is finished. I'll post picture later today.

    DONE!!! Well, except for the pressing, sandwiching and quilting. I'm not too happy with my choice of the rectangles and stars colours, but I was trying to use up that awful (to me) peachy orange. I really like this design and think it would look smashing in black - whites with red stars. Another project to put on my "to do" list.

    Love seeing all these finished ones. I am a late starter, just cutting my blocks out last night. Have a bit more to do tonight and will sew them this weekend. Still have not determined what I will use for my A and B fabric. More digging in the stash for that.

    Thanks Judy once again for a wonderful pattern and great way to do a mystery.

    belfy those peacy stars help ton down the blocks dont you think? some of us (me) had some bright bold colored blocks randomly sitting in our squares. Your choice of a and b helped soften that up. what a good idea!

    It's so amazing to see how the same pattern comes out so different for each quilter. I'm starting to quilt mine ... i decided to use a high-loft batting (mostly because I had some in my closet!) THe batting was kind of wrinkled and had lumps, so I spritzed it and put it in the dryer; the wrinkles came out, but the batting got PUFFED! It's much thicker than it was to start with. Making it very interesting to quilt .....
