    I started this quilt in 2008 and it is all hand pieced with 864 blocks. I love to hand piece as well as machine piece. Hand piecing is good for the time you sit in front of the TV.

    Wonderful. I agree, it is a Blue Ribbon winner.
    What is the name of the pattern and can it be done by machine?

    That is beautiful. I've never seen that pattern before. It looks difficult but you did a great job. Good luck in your show--I don't know how you wouldn't win. Let us know how it goes.

    This is gorgeous & I'll be looking for your Blue Ribbon when you show it off. I've seen Cathedral Windows, but they only have four sides within each window & your's has six. Can you give us the name of your quilt pattern & directions on where to find a pattern like it online?

    Oooooooh, this one reminds me of my first memories of loving quilts...as beautiful as the quilt it to look at, I just really want to TOUCH it....run my hand over it, close my eyes, and sleep like a child with a smile on my face! Thanks so much for posting this one! Your handwork is amazing, your choice of fabrics is perfect for this pattern...I'm LOVIN' everything about this quilt! Many of us would love to know the name/source of this pattern...if you are able to share any info, PLEASE do...we'll all be thrilled and if it's your original design, PLEASE publish it! You've got a winner with this one!

    The pattern is called star window and a friend of mine adapted it form another patten to this pattern. It isn't hard to do and a good take along project. My friend still teaches it to our guild and it is a very popular class.
