    Here is a picture of the quilt I am currently working on. It's for my nephew's wedding. He wanted browns.

    Very nice. I'd be lucky if I could get to pieces to a point let alone all of thoes. I've always love that pattern but scares me to death. Could I have one in pink purple and blue Please.

    Here is the first one I did. My husband loves it and won't let me give it away. I've yet to actually quilt it but soon. You can see some of my other quilts on my www in my profile.

    I just saw a show on QNN where you can make that without sewing any stars as stars, it is strip quilting of some type without dealing with the points. Just looked it up on one of my notes, it is called, "No Points Sewing". Check QNN's program listing for a repeat of the show.

    That is really pretty. That pattern is on my list of someday quilts when I get much much better at quilting than I am now. If you'd like to make me one so that I will have it to compare to you can make it in red white and blue (smiles). I'll send you my snail mail addy.

    I have the fabric all purchased for the next one which is going to be in shades of reds and blacks. My son chose the colors, I don't know how it's going to look when done. We shall see. Of course I'll share pictures when I get to that point.

    Wow...how beautiful! I've never had the urge to do a Mariner's block. Like someone else said, getting two points together scares me to death, too. I appreciate your color choices and your beautiful workmanship. I can see why your husband won't let you give it away.Good job.

    May I ask, what size are your diamonds (both the small & large)? BTW, both are beautiful! I love the way you put the "brighter" color in the center instead of a dark; it really makes your stars "shine".

    These were made using that strip method cutting on a 45 degree angle. I won't fib and say it was easy. It was challenging for sure. I liked this pattern because it matched the outer tips with the center, all others I've seen don't do that. I did just get a book on making them without diamonds she uses hst and rectangles, that way there aren't any set in pieces. I think I'd have more trouble matching up the 100's and 100's of hst's.
    Thank you all for the nice comments.

    The small diamonds are 2"x 4" and the large are 22 1/4" x 9 1/4". I hope that helps.

    I can't even imagine tackling anything this complex! Yours are both beautiful, though! I love the colors in both of them.

    I made one once using the quiltsmart technique and it came out beautiful, it was so accurate. Try that if you are scared to death.
