    This is from Carol Doaks free patterns web site. I had fun doing it! I was going to give it away as a gift, but I'm really not happy with a couple of places where the points don't match up well. Oh gosh, I guess I'll have to keep it for myself. My biggest complaint is that at some of the intersections, I have a lot of bulk. Lacelady suggested that when I quilt it, I should quilt 1/4 away from the seams........that way I don't have to worry about the machine getting the needle through the bulk.

    Wow-great job. Love the colors, too. I don't see any missed points. That really has a lot of "movement"--love it.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone. It'good to get positive feedback sometimes.

    Sharon, I thought the blocks were supposed to be 12" finished, but mine ended up being 11". So the top is 22" square. I need to buy more fabric because I want to put a 2" border around it.

    That's beautiful Ducky - there's so much movement in it - and it is stunning in blue and white.
