    I'm sorry, I didn't intend to roast her!! When she said DH thinks she's baked, I had to throw in the half cause of all the half square triangles she's making!!

    What a beautiful block you have made, Shadow! I LOVE the carpenters star/wheel in every fabric combo I've seen. I've made a couple quilts using that block pattern only enlarged and with a few rounds added for the entire quilt.
