    I applaud your taking on this large of a project so early in your quilting ... a king size scares me now and I've been quilting for a number of years!

    This is going to be a real beauty, the fabrics, colors and pattern play so well together.

King size really scares me and I think i maybe should have went with a simpler pattern (this is a lot of sewing), and I am willing to change the pattern if it would be for the best. I really want it to be special and I'm just afraid that I will get it done and it wont have the wow factor. I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions.
    I think it is beautiful I love brn and blk together and simple nine patch.

    the only place that you are loosing the contrast is where the HST is the same fabric as the nine patch below it. That is what I noticed when I squinted but overall I love the pattern!

    see if your library has Machine Quilting in Sections by Marti Mitchell (I think). you could finish sections and then sew those together to make it King size. black and brown. you may need more of those colors but it's looking wonderful so far!!
