    King BOM my LAer was so impressed with (still don't know why)

    Here are some pictures of my king quilt. Remember, it's Civil war fabric so it's not all bright and cheerful. They are all "Stars in a star". I have two borders and each border and a star in each corner, so there is 8 more stars. Now, I can not make a flying goose correctly no matter how hard I try and I had to fudge 128 flying geese. Not one turned out correctly. And I really tried. I did a lot of 1/8" seams so as to not lose the points on the flying geese. The quilt is so big I couldn't lay it flat anywhere in my house. Here is some pictures. Hope they turned out okay. You'll see by the pictures that the quilt isn't any big deal. I don't know what the LAer was talking about when she told my LQS owner what a fantastic job I did on it.

    Well, JCrow, all you have to do is look at it to know you did a fantastic job. Your points are all perfect and pretty. You really did a good job and the quilt is very pretty.

    It is beautiful! You obviously are better at "fudging" than some of us! It looks perfect to me!

    I can see where she would give you praise. Having good points, squared up blocks, and flat borders is a LAr's dream. Praise well deserved.

    I think it is a big deal and is beautiful! Don't be so hard on yourself with the flying geese. They look just fine!

    Great job!

    I love Civil War fabric. It looks great.

    I think you under estimate yourself. It's very nice. Love your prints, too.

    I am not a fan of Civil War fabrics...but I may have just changed my mind! This is a great quilt, and I love the stars within stars - you got the level of contrast just right so your eye floats over the quilt and doesn't get stuck anywhere. And I have now learned that "flying geese" isn't just when you put the units nose to tail, as I always thought. Cool!

    As for your LAer: my theory is that she wants to buy the quilt from you... You'll be rich! Rich, I say!!!
