    Beautiful! I have a pattern for that, but haven't decided on fabrics yet. You selected some really nice colors, and it looks great.

    I love it, I've also started this pattern, would you believe same colours as yours.......... but you are so right, a really hard one, and I keep putting it off to go onto the next stage, I feel very intimidated by it.

    Will be watching with interest to see your finished quilt!

    I can't even imagine the fun you have had with that. I have never seen that pattern before and it confuses my mind mightily , looking at it and trying to figure out how it could possibly be done. You have a real winner there.

    I bought a pattern for this about 10 years ago in Amish co,PA. Still haven't done it. That is going to be beautiful.

    I bought this pattern after I saw this quilt at Lolly's in Shipshewana, IN. Was it as hard as it looks? I've been afraid to attempt it. I've been taking the easy way out as far as quilting goes and have never really challenged myself. Would this be a good pattern to do that?

    That is absolutely beautiful. I have one that has been on my design wall for ever. After a couple of years, I took it down and tried to finish but because I'm now using a different machine, the 1/4" seams were not the same :-( . . . so the set-ins didn't fit. I'll give it another shot after I finish the alphabet books I working on now.
    Did you ever have a project that just didn't want to be done? ? and fought you every step of the way? ? This is turning into one.
    Yours is an inspiration. Thanks

    Great Job on that star spin!!!


    i found it fun in the beginning..making the log cabin type squares.

    putting it together..was another story. i ended up fixing a couple of my friends, (we all took a class together)they would not lay flat in the center.
    i never finished one of mine

    i would say, try it! look how beautiful it is!
    pay close attention to the instructions..
    mine said to cut the strips and to sew one end, then flip the next strip and sew it on. clear as mud?!

    @karenpatrick, this is a hard pattern to understand, but if you go step by step and don't get ahead of yourself it can be done, it has been very hard because I havent been a quilter very long, but i keep my seam ripper ready :)
