    I have seen many of these done up. I do not care for the pattern. Too many big pieces. My friends seem to think they need 20 different fat quarters for this and its just awful. Looks like a run away train wreck. Just my opinion.

    I love this pattern, made 2 so far and my friend made one scrappy! That is one of my next projects! Right after my boss's quilt that will be a Christmas gift. Gee, I need to get started. So many quilts on my list to make!

    Actually I have made several and I like them for fast quilts. The fabric though makes the quilt! I saw one made of all neutrals (beiges/tans/off whites) as a wedding quilt, and it was absolutely beautiful. It was a perfect canvas for some beautiful quilting. I have made one and appliqued desden plates on top and it doesn't look bad at all---after I get it quilted I will post it.

    Again, that is what makes our art so much fun---it is full of variety.

    I'm not partial to the pattern either, but that's just me! Though every time I hear/see it, you'll have me smiling and thinking ..... runaway train wreck!!!!!!!! :lol:

    I'll agree on that ..... as is with many patterns ..... we can make or break a pattern with the right/wrong fabrics!

    Just added beiges/tans/white turning twenty to my list, how beautiful that would be! The list just never ends, but this has got to be one for at the top of the list! I do love that pattern. When quilted they are beautiful! I dont' have loads of free time to quilt so this is great for me!

    I love this pattern for quick gifts, if you use big prints it is perfect. For the newbie it is something you can make and finish and be proud of it.

    I think the person who created this pattern has written 3 books, so there are quite a few different designs.

    I have seen a lot of different patterns that I think are train wrecks. It really depends on fabric choices and arrangement of colors.
