    I got an idea to make a fall quilt. But I was wondering if someone made it befor me or not. We sometimes think we come up wtih a new pattern but only to find out someone made it befor us.. So what do you think of this?

    It's really pretty. At one of the Quilt Shops in town, they have a strippers club once per month where we get a pattern for making a quilt with 2.5" strips. The stars look like a pattern from a few months ago.

    I love the french braid strips

    So you're idea might not be 100% original but what matters is that you put various things together, and you'll personalize it with your colors and you're quilting

    I like it! You would LOVE EQ! I t would save so much time with colored pencils! I hope you make this quilt and show us pictures. I really like the combo of multi-colored Ohio Stars with the French braids.

    I love your idea! Make it happen in fabric, and of course we need pics! It looks so scrappy and fall-ish. I say go for it!

    Very pretty! I like the triangle border, too. It gives a nice festive look. :-)

    Very nice, love your choice of colours in your design - are you going to go head & make it from this pattern?

    Well I desided on the back ground color of the star blocks is going to be gold, and the red strips are going to be a dark red with gold in it. The boader is going to be a darkred red that will mathc the strips ,but with out the gold and has leaves on it. The braids and the stars are going to be scrapy, colors oranges,yellowes,reds, and browns. And maybe some dark green. But I only have enough fabric for a minature quilt. I'll have to make it a wall hanging.

    I love your design. In my opinion I would add another row of the braid on the right side to balance out the design.

    I love the pattern and the prairie points I think will make a nice finish.
    I look forward to seeing the finished project and it would be fun to enlarge this to a full size quilt as well.

    I think your combination of pioneer braid and stars is unique and very motivating to view.
    THERE! I did find another word for INSPIRING!
    It is going to be a beautiful quilt.
