    It's one of the best so far...I haven't even cut the pattern apart yet...so, please someone, give me a nudge to get started...lol...but in my defense, yesterday I went to buy 2 new Olfa cutting mats(one really huge one and the other was more than half the size of the first one) for $30...then the lady(who was giving up quilting) showed me 110 yds plus of Quilt Fabric shop material all neatly folded, pressed, & stacked...she was selling it at $2/yd, but said if I wanted all of it, I could have it for $100...that's less than $1.00/yd...(happy dance...lol)...Sat. I will cut the Candlequilter's Star apart and try...Naomi

    It may busy, but it's very pretty busy. You did a great job getting the "America's" in the corners. Beautiful!

    Thank you everyone. I can tell you, being a newbie to quilting, this was quite a challenge for me but I am glad I hung in there. I kept saying "never again" but now that I have it done and learned from it, "well lets just say I might." LOL
    I really appreciate the comments. You all are very generous and encouraging.
