    I changed the pattern around on this one several times before I came up with this solution (which meant I ripped it apart three times). Sometimes it just doesn't pay to try to change things. It has some mistakes but it is DONE.

    I really love it. Those stars, triangles are hard to do. Have you thought of buying several large pieces of foam core board and simply tape the with duct tape to use as a wall board. It would be light weight and could be stored when not in use. Then you could lay all the pieces on it and decide how the quilt top would look without sewing it all together. It may save you ripping everything out.... jmho,
    Kindly,

    Beautiful, actually I find following a pattern is faster than all the "fast quilts. I am of the belief there is no such thing as a fast quilt, unless it is a whole cloth.

    Oh my! That is beautiful! Don't tell anyone you had so much trouble. It's a work of art and is absolutely wonderful.

    Question from a newbie:

    How do you put so many colors together and have it look good? Whenever I put more than may be 3 colors into one quilt, it just starts to look like mush.
