    Thanks all for the compliments... If you look closely you will find alot of mistakes in the small triangles :lol: My direction of flow got messed up a couple of times... The first few I did rip out and re-sew but after a while I just stopped worrying about them...

    Nanabirdmo it took me quite a long time to piece.. Probably at least 3 weeks.. I was switching back and forth between tops so it is hard to calculate more accurately... I also do not sew as fast as some.. So it may not take you as long as it did me..

    Diamonds,
    This is a spectacular quilt. You did a wonderful job in piecing and you did it in my favorite color. BLUE. I love your quilt.

    Do you mean the quilting for me??? I have a friend by the name of Vickie who owns a long arm... She quilts them for $40.00 a piece for me.. Which includes backing and batting..

    My goal to accomplish by this spring is for all my siblings to have a quilt made by me.. Also an Uncle and my 3 best friends... Which is a total of 8 kings... By tonight I will have 4 of them finished... I have 3 more pieced that will be quilted after Christmas and 1 more quilt that is about 3/4 pieced.. I want the last 4 done by the middle of Febuary...

    I think doing king size quilts is why I hit quilt burn out about a month ago.. :(

    I really like the second quilt too. As my grandson would say, it makes me bizzy. Is that based on the friendship star that's the BOM for Dec. 15? I like the way you have interlocking stars in contrasting colors.
