    This is my first quilt that I designed in EQ for my Dad for his Birthday. It is paper pieced (boy, I will never paper piece so many identical pieces again) It seemed to take forever.
    I quilted it on my little Brother sewing machine, also my first attempt at FMQ. I discovered that I really need a much bigger table for my sewing machine, and a sewing machine with a larger throat would be nice too LOL
    I am really please with the final quilt, I hope he will like it. :D

    Not sure what to call it maybe "Starry Night" any suggestions???

    Well done Woody it's beautiful, how could your Dad not love it!

    Your FMQing is lovely too.

    I admire you for being able to do so much paper piecing, I'm sure I would be sick of it before I finished!

    :thumbup: :D

    I really like it! It's vaguely reminiscent of Storm at Sea to me. Maybe call it sea Stars. Hmm, I may have to ask you to sell me a copy of the pattern!

    I love your suggestion of "Sea Stars", gaigai, the block is called Jungle Star in EQ7 if I can work out how to save and email a pattern I would be happy to send it to you.
