    Beautiful quilt! I bet that took a long time. I have one stashed away in a closet that I don't want to finish...maybe one day.
    I didn't see the mistakes either. Almost everytime I make a quilt I tell myself that I am going to be very careful. I usually end up cutting something too small and having to go buy more fabric!
    Keep 'em coming.
    God Bless!

    This is a very nice quilt! I could only hope to someday be able to make one just as nice!

    I love this quilt pattern. I looked on Quilter's Cache for the pattern you said was "Garden Path". Do you know whose pattern it is.
    You are such a prolific quilter and a terrific person. I enjoy your pictures and your messages

    The log cabin quilt is beautiful too. A quilt sure makes a room look cozy doesn't it!
    God Bless!

    I just wanted to say that I am fairly new at it too, and of the 10-12 quilts I have made, the largest was a twin size. I like the smaller projects that don't take as long. Also, it doesn't matter what size they are...it is the hobby that you enjoy and keeps you quilting. I'd like to see some of your quilts.
    God Bless!

    wow! that is beautiful! isn't it funny how we feel the need to point out our mistakes? must be a 'quilter' thing. i did the same thing with my quilting neighbor the other day on one of my projects and she called me on it!

    i just love that pattern. i was trying to figure out which is the main block. it is the star? or the square?

    just beautiful! so glad you finished and posted it. oh, and i had to really look to notice the four patches in the middle, let alone see any that were turned the wrong way! :-)

    Oh sorry fish--I just dig it out and its "Garden Lane" by Patch Works studio. I ordered in years ago online. I'd love to see it done in other colors.

    Wow--thanks for all the kind words, everyone. You give me warm fuzzies. Mmmmmm. :D

    Oh YES--that's it fabricluvr :!: :!: :!: How did I miss your reply before I added mine?? But that is the same picture I'm looking at right now.

    I have to say it took the longest time for me to find the right colors for this one--I searched for the one for the big square first. The trouble was I pictured something in my head, then didn't stop looking until I found it. Then, it was darned tricky to find the ones I wanted to match. :roll: Took weeks.

    It's the square--and the star--in one row, then the second row is a small part of it--a narrower row--the plain square with some flying geese and a four square beside it to help make it complete in the next row.

    Does that make sense? :roll: I can see why you'd have trouble figuring it out. If it's making you crazy--I'll scan the picture of how it's put together here.... let me know. :wink:

    Dawn--I'd have to be feeling VERY ambitious to try this one again. I'd never be able to decide on colors for a second one :!: :!: The barn one I'll start over break will be enough of a challenge for now. :-)

    Barnbum:
    I have this pattern waiting to be made up. Yours is gorgeous!! The quilter is RIGHT! It is a keeper. Even tho you said it was the hardest you've made don't you feel a real sense of accomplishment when you look at it and see how beautiful it is? Kinda like having a baby...as soon as you look at that new baby you forget the pain and agony associated with the making of this wonderful, new creation. I find my quilting projects somewhere close to the same.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Looks great to me. I make mistakes on everything I do, It just won't be right if I didn't.
