    I LOVE your fabric selection! I made a quilt from this pattern. It is amazing how it comes out. How will you quilt it?

    That will be a great baby quilt. They say that black and white are the first colors that attract a baby's eyes.

    Easy is a relative term! LOL! As long as you accurately sewed the strips and then accurately cut the triangles with the ruler, and then carefully pressed them without stretching; then all the seams line up really well. I sewed the 2 blocks together last night and had to sew slowly to ensure that the seams matched. They came out really great! I was able to match ALL the seams! AND, you really need to pay attention to the center of the starpoints, you have to remove the couple of stitches and make that tiny pinwheel in the middle so the block lays flat. That wasn't too hard though.
    I can't wait to see this one completed! My son really wants one, so he's trying to be patient :-) I purchased some of that black light thread that Dusty Farrell uses so I can quilt his!

    I'm not sure yet... When I get to that point, I'll post a picture of the quilt top and ask for suggestions! I'm a "new" longarmer, so I don't have the "mad" skills of some of the ladies on this board, but I'm practicing my heart out! LOL! I am working with "hooked on feathers" by Sally Terry. I really like the freedom of her feathers. I might do that, not sure :-)

    So beautiful, so easy.
    Trick to keeping from stretching is spray starch. Spray, let dry, spray. let dry. Don't try pressing when wet.
    Terrific job.
