I made this as a demonstration of the Half Yard Challenge as seen in the Fons & Porter's 2006 magazine. I haven't actually read the magazine but I did tape the episode from PBS & from that I put together a class for our local guild. It was a lot of fun and I'm going to do another wallhanging; same fabrics but much larger and with many more pieces to continue the design. I thought I would share it with everyone. In the class we focused on how to get the half square and quarter square triangle pieces to line up and come out perfectly. I think I did pretty good.

It looks great. I recognize the center block from one of the BOM's.

My daughter Jasmine, the taller of the two geisha girls in my avatar, asked me to tell you, "You did really really really really really good!!!"
I think she's impressed :thumbup:

Thanks everyone. The Challenge is to cut squares, half square and quarter square triangles, then put them together in whatever way you choose, which means everyone designs their own quilt. I decided to be a bit lazy and go with a star in the center and build out from there. Since I was in charge of the Challenge I should have picked something a bit more challenging but I like the star block. I did feel like I cheated the ladies by having it so small (each square is 4 inches), which is part of why I am looking forward to doing the other one. I think this is going to be a popular class for my local guilds. I've already got a couple ladies who want to come over and go through the Challenge with me at my house. :D I'm very excited!

jbsstrawberry, please tell your daughter thank you and I appreciate her encouragement!

Jasmine said "You're welcome Miss Tiffany. Maybe my mommy can make one like yours someday."
Mommy says Jasmine has very high hopes for mommy! LOL
