    I will be the first to admit, I don't do sewing on the diagonal, I am a straight stitcher.....however I loved this Quiltville pattern and decided to give it a try. It wasn't as horid as I thought it was going to be.

    I am still going to add borders.......maybe

    I like it. But it does look difficult to do. Nice job.

    Are you sure it's not as hard as you thought? I looks very complicated to me, but you've done a beautiful job on it! Love your color choices with the white :thumbup:

    it's surprising what you can do with lots of squares and even more diagonal seams, by the time you finished all of these up I'll bet you were a lot more comfortable with the technique, am I right? Your top looks great, add a border or two to make those little slanted stars sparkle!

    It is all men's shirts, however they have no significance....I bought them at the thrift store, I'm divorced so no man to snatch from lol....

    Thanks

    Isn't Quiltville.com just one of the best sites to go to and just look? I would find a nice brick red to use for your border.

    I bookmarked your quilt...I love it!!! I have my Mom saving my Dad's old work shirts instead of letting him do house work in them when they are worn...someday this quilt pattern will be perfect for them. Very nice work!!

    Beautiful! I've always like that pattern but haven't done one yet. I think it will be pretty with or without borders.

    Very nice, and I think it needs a border. IMHO

    Great looking quilt. I'm made Bonnie's Smoky Mountain Star pattern in blues and browns for the stars and creams for the other blocks. May in Jersey
