    I am so busy just staring at it, my mind is just stunned. Each block is it's own little masterpiece.

    Ube, Thank you for your kind words. This was a group quilt along here on the Board. You can see all our blocks close up on the dedicated thread: http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...s-t171784.html.

    Take care, Nicky

    NY Gal, thank you for your kind words!! Sometimes I used the same colors as in the book, most of the time not. Since each block takes at least 5 or 6 different fabrics, I would start with a focal print and pull the other colors from that. I bought small pieces or fat quarters I liked when I saw them. I keep the fabrics separated by main color in gallon size baggies.

    This was a group quilt along here on the Board. Some people used a limited set of fabrics with one background. Mine is totally scrappy.

    I made them all but left out NM, only because I didn't like the fabric I used. You can post your pics on the dedicated thread here:

    Thank you Florence. I can't wait to see yours!! I hope to go on another quilting journey with you, and Sue and the others. This has been a blast, and I feel I have made some friends here.

    It looks like some new folks have seen it and want to start a new group. I hope they find as fine a group leader as we have.

    Thank you so much for your service.

    Nicky

    Fantastic! Is this your first pp attempt? Either way it looks great. I also love your avatar photo. I'm fascinated by lighthouses.

    Thank you for your kind words! In 2011 there was a Houses BOM and most of that was paper pieced. The BOM was twelve 12" x 12" blocks and then I paper pieced a whole lot more smaller blocks to complete the quilt. It is called "Gimme Shelter" and you can see it here, at the bottom of the page: http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...170486-25.html

    What perseverance and determination to finish your quilt. I love stars but they are so hard to make. Yours is beautiful!
