    I am making a 2 color carpentar and when I first looked at your stars I thought we had used the same fabric. It is very similar. Beautiful quilt.

    Thank you for the compliment and the sashing is just narrow grossgrain ribbon which is all I had at the time that wold go well with the other colors. Now I want to make one for "ME" lol but smaller stars. This one is about 120" X 120" which is really an over sized king. I quilted each block then put them together.

    Neat quilt. Your points are so precise. I like the colors and the idea of the grosgrain is really clever.

    Is that from Jenny @ MSQC? I like the thin dark sashing. You didn't snow ball the blocks. It's a different way, but nice. I like it. I bought fabrics to make it, and decided to use them for something different. I want to make that Big Star in the same colors she used in her Tutorial. I just love it.

    BTW... Did you have any problems with Points or seams matching if you did use Jenny's tut? She made hers from a 2 Layer cakes. Also, how much of the cream/background fabric did you use?

    You did a great job. I like the colors. I actually went to the LQS on my lunch hour today to pick out some fabric to make one of these for me. Instead, I found some fabric to make one of my boys another deer quilt...
