    Hi tms,
    Sorry it's been a full year since we did the tutorial. I do have the instructions for it but am not allowed to share it. The class instructor had to get permission to share it and use it with our class. My suggestion would be to do an online search for "no Y seams quilt pattern" and bet you'll find one somewhere. It was surprisingly easy to make this large star though because it was created making blocks and then sewing the blocks together and when you were done, you had a beautiful star. I felt that although I just used scraps, this star was too beautiful not to use. Because of the colors used, this quilt said "Michael" every time I touched from the very first when I began selecting the fabrics. Between my 2 children, they have blessed us with a total of 7 grandchildren and Michael is the last to get his scrap quilt by Grammy. As a scrap quilter, it's hard for me to waste fabrics and this one seems to be a real "people magnet." It always amazes me the reactions everyone has to this quilt when they see me working on it. As a "quilt as you go" quilter with out a hoop or frame, my quilts draw attention and this one sure has garnered not only attention but excited, enthusiastic praise. His Mom loves it and hopefully he will too. It's comfy too.
    Thanks for looking.
    Hugs
    Patty
    Cosmic Jewels is a pattern by Debbie Maddy. It has no Y seams and is similar to this. She has several different patterns with no Y seams. The link is www.calicocarriage.com. They are fast to put together too.

    Beautiful quilt !! One day reading forum saw-The Villages in address. I have non quilting friends that live there but was able to meet Rose and visit a few min at the Quilt Show end of Jan. Planned that trip for 2 months.
    Very enjoyable for me --but hubby accidentally wiped all my photo's off the camera. Only time I met a QB member.

    Love " The Villages" but have to be south closer to water for boating --never been golfers

    Just bookmarked this for future reference and yes, that large evening star looks very much like the pattern I did. Of course choice of fabric and colors totally effects the appearance of the quilt. Thank you so much for sharing this with us so that those who may want to give it a try can. Wish I could share the one I have as it was so easy to use but don't want to violate anyone's copyright

    Thank you. Started with my own 2 children when they were in college with putting the signature on the front of the quilt and hand embroidered so that it wouldn't be easy to remove if someone wanted to steal it. For adults where the quilts stay home, the labels go on the back. Quilting is so much fun. Working on another one right now. It's a round robin done a year ago and trying to build it out into a nice sized throw. At the point where the math isn't working out right so this is interesting but something will pop into my head that will work. LOL.

    I'm running out of adjectives tonight, there are too many beautiful quilts! I love this one and I know it would be a hit with my grandsons.
