    My first queen size quilt top.

    Hi I am so pleased with my latest endeavour. What do you think of my interpritation of the Ohio Star. I would value your critique.

    Your quilt is beautiful! I'm going to be starting my first queen size quilt this week. I have never made anything larger than a twin. Ohio Star is one of my favorite blocks but I have been afraid of all the points. Yours look amazing. Great job!

    It's so lovely. The Ohio Star is a favorite of mine and I think you did it proud.

    Hey HollyDav
    I was terrified when I started but I can assure you that once the penny drops it just flows. You go for it.

    unfortunately not all my points meet up as they should, but this is what makes all quilts original and hand made in their own right.

    I love it! Especially the subtle TOT of the cream - really brings the viewer into the quilt. You did such a wonderful job, those points are so crisp, someday I hope I can do as well as you did. Thanks for showing your beautiful masterpiece.
