    I finished getting the body all sewn together tonight. This is made from 2 jelly rolls plus 6 FQs of the lights in the Moda Portobello Market collection. I ordered the yardage for the border in the dark blue. It has an overall brown/red look so I wanted to bring out the blue in it more.

    I think I will quilt it accenting the center star by echoing the star shape at 2" intervals in the center. Maybe a motif in the on-point square shapes around the star.

    The only place large enough to take a picture laying straight is in the kitchen/family room and I don't feel like moving the table tonight!

    Beautiful! Probably one of my all-time favorite patterns! I'm working on one now and will soon be ready to sew the blocks together.

    Pam ~ I always enjoy seeing your quilts;You do absolutely gorgeous work. You are so percise and you have a definite eye for colors. You are definitely one of my role models, girl! Question:That is a huge quilt and you mentioned that you are going to do the quilting yourself? Do you have a long arm or do you hand quilt?

    Oh, what a beautiful quilt you have there. And the colors are perfect. This pattern is the one I need to find. I am making a quilt for each of my 3 grandchildren to have when they are married, or what ever. I have two completed in Queen size. and was having a hard time deciding on the pattern for the third. This is the one ( ages of grandchildren are 12,10,7) so I have time.
    Please, would you tell me what Pattern you used and where I could find it . My problem is I have block patterns, but have no understanding on how much yardage I need to purchase. Thanks

    I hand quilt. I've been eyeing it and if I do the four courner sections with a line down the center of each strip, the echo quilting in the star, and a motif in each on-point square on the 4 sides... maybe it won't be too much to contemplate. Otherwise, I'll tie it. :wink:

    I used this pattern that has 2 1/2" strips because I wanted to use jelly rolls. There are a whole lot of setting styles at the bottom too.

    This link has the instructions. It is very easy, just a whole lot of straight seams.
