    My First One Block Wonder

    Made from an outer-space/planets fabric! Its all pieced together and I love it but I'm scared to quilt because I don't want to mess it up. Wish me luck!

    This is your first?! It's terrific! I'd love to see the original fabric.

    Out of this world! Great quilt.
    I know what I thought I was making when I started this quilt, but it has changed several times since then.

    I don't know if anyone else does this but I cut half triangles, and their mirrors, to put together in all the spaces at the top and bottom. I usually cut them at the beginning of each strip when cutting triangles. You have to cut that triangle off at the beginning of the strip anyway. ) Ann

    You did an amazing job with this. I love how the yellow cuts thorugh the centre as if it were a milky way or something. Please show it to us when you have it quilted.
