I like the yellow and blue. Very Pretty!

Here's what I've got so far. I think I will just applique it for the center and then piece the rest.

If you want to try it in Christmas Colors, try it. :) You'll be doing it on your own time, and it will get done when it gets done, it will be all you.

EZquilts4me (& anyone else working on this quilt). It is looking great. That is a good idea to applique it. She doesn't really give the right dimensions for the piecing. Where I had a little trouble is putting the small star border around. I somehow got that part messed up. I know what I did wrong and won't bore you all with it.

Keep it up yours is looking good.

I just took a better look. That is your corner stars not the center right? Are you going to applique the center or the corners? The pattern calls for the center pieced and the corners appliqued. Just curious.

That's my center.

My size was a guess. For what looks like a 12 inch square, I started with 2.5 inch strips of 3 fabrics, after they were sewn together I cut on the 45 degree angle, and sewed those triangles together to form the 90 degree angles.

I went to the free paper pieced pattern that was posted in the spring discussion, here it is if anyone's interested: http://www.quilterscache.com/S/Spinn...heelBlock.html

I'll try that for the border of smaller stars... either that or get lazy and just do pinwheels. :D

BTW For those looking for a quick and pretty Christmas project, just make the center, and you can either turn it into a table topper or a tree skirt. Just add backing (batting if you want it quilted, obviously) and use bias tape for the edge, or sew it inside-out and flip like a pillow.
