    Since I finished my 9 patch I needed another hand quilting project. I considered finishing an UFO but I am not ready for that. As I was pondering the answer came to me. Literally, in the mail. My friend Ducky sent me a gift of Moda Charm packs and a pattern for their use. I then RAN to the sewing room and created this beauty. It matches my living room perfectly. How she knew that I have no idea. Thank you so much Ducky!!! I hope to have this done by time my brother gets here next month. We will see. Wish me luck!!!

    BTW how do you think I should quilt it??

    Well, that is just beautiful. And that Ducky is one smart duck! And nice, too! I love the pattern, I did a lap quilt in that same pattern which will be a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law. I really like the way it turned out, and yours looks just great.

    Great pattern, and love that pattern. I would probably do 1/4 in in on the stars and then a pretty flower in the squares!

    I really like that K! And that Ducky is just too loverly for words! As to the quilting, I'm with Ninnie on the echo of the stars and a motif - maybe a flower or maybe a star? in the 4 patches. :D

    The pattern was in a pamplet Ducky sent me. It is the same though as Quilters cache. Austin or Simple Star except for all 9 base blocks are the same size. so your geese on each of four sides of the center is not a rectangle. Thank you Ducky. I absolutly love it.

    Beautiful. As a hand quilter I love all the open space you will have to quilt.

    I just took the class from Jean Brown on how to use the Aunt Becky, I want to make a project just for it. I want to make something with a lot of open space, to practice this new technique. I am thinking an Ohio Star.
