    I like the bright colors. Isn't it wierd how people like different things. But this is a good thing. Seriously though, I like it!

    I love the design and the use of space. You did a fab job on the putting it together. I like the colors okay but, wouldn't be my first choice either. Nice Job on it though. I can only dream of being able to do that someday

    OH MY! You are so talented, gcathie. I can't finish projects I don't absolutely love and color is so important to us. What a fantastic job you did! I'm sure you will want a little time off from that pattern----it looks incredibly difficult and is pieced so perfectly-----but how nice it will be when you have one that you do adore the colors of and what a great story behind it.

    Oh, and totally off subject, thanks again for the pincushion instructions. I haven't gotten around to doing it yet because I've done a couple others in a simpler design and am giving them for B-day/Christmas gifts to my family members who sew....but I will get to it....I want one for me! :D

    nice work, I agree with you on the colors, but still what an amazing job. And to each his own, I'm certain your friend will love it. Gifts from friends are always cherished.

    Gcathie, I laughed when I read that comment......you just have to love the colours or you cant get over it. You did well to finish it, if I dont like the colours I give up.

    Your friend will love it cause you made it for her.

    Cathie....you have done a great job on the lonestar, I have just been studying how to do these by strip piecing and debating whether it's worth buying the special template or whether just to use a normal ruler, can you advise me??

    I like the colours, but I particularly like bright colours at the moment anyway!! :D

    Izy.....I did strip piece this....wasn't as bad as I thought it would be once I figured out a method that worked for me...good luck...p.s. make sure you do it in colors you like.... :wink:

    this is 70 x 70 and I did it in these colors cause if i messed it up i could toss it and not feel bad....tere is mistakes...and a story behind the whole thing just so glad its big enough to be useful...and call it done... :?

    thanks again everyone for your kind words....

    Great job as usuall!! The colors aren't bad, it is very cheerful though! The dresdens look great - your other dresden quilt has inspired me to do one - bought the ruler - will get to it someday!!
