    When I was making Shawna's quilt, I ordered some material off the internet. When I got it, I sent the woman a picture of the quilt I was making with it and she hired me to make one for her and her daughter to cuddle with and watch TV. Here's some pictures of her "throw" and the pillow I made for her daughter, who's favorite colors are pink and purple. I made the throw 72" x 85" so it would be plenty big for 2 people. It took me a month to make and tie it.

    Thank you! This is a Carpenter's Star block. It is 12". I made the pattern after seeing a picture of one and not being able to find a pattern for it anywhere.

    That is so pretty! Looks like that block might be your specialty. Do you happen to know where one might get the pattern? :-)

    Did you try www.quilterscache.com? Hope this is right.

    I found Carpenter's Wheel on Quilts Galore.

    Hi! There is a Carpenter's Wheel pattern but it is not the same as the one I made. Let me know if you would like a copy of the pattern that I made.

    Hi everyone and thank you so very much for all the positive feedback and compliments. I have received a lot of requests for the pattern that I made. I am going to post it so watch for it if you were interested.
