    Emma, thanks for the kind comments.
    Maybe I have just looked at it for too long now, because I don't like what I see, lol.

    Havplenty, thanks for the vote of confidence, I am thinking I will be adding one or two more columns and rows, help me God,lol. Actually, because I make my QST the speedy way, I still have a few left, and have extra squares already cut, so the Ohio stars part shouldn't be a problems, can't say the same for the rest, lol.

    Jan, very pretty, I love the yellow.

    Thank you all so much! Other than a nine patch baby blanket, this is the only quilt I have made. I don't mind saying that I was in over my head but am thrilled to have finished it. I learned so much. I don't know if I will do another Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quiltin the future lol!

    I just realized while looking at this picture, I sewed the bottom row of yellow on upside down! Ugh, guess I am not finished after all!

    Isn't it amazing what stays hidden until we take a picture? I didn't see it either. Unsewing is never as bad as you think, good thing to do while watching TV. Can't believe this is your second quilt. I have been quilting for a number of years but still learned a lot from this one.

    Finally, finished my Black Ohio Stars

    At last, 28 black Ohio Stars. I decided to use the same fabric for the center block hoping it will give some eye relief to the finished quilt. I will be doing the same for the neutral Ohio Stars. Now on to the neutrals.

    Caroline: I did the same thing with the center of the star. Like you I thought it would calm it down. What is your other color going to be?

    I was thinking about using the same fabric for the neutral blocks, I have made one but I think I will make one with a blue fabric and see which I like best.

So I am thinking, even though I don't really want to,lol, I am going to make more blocks..unless I can think of a border idea. Right now though I am tired of this quilt and no even sure I like it, so I am going to keep thinking on it while I work on a different project.

    Very pretty, I like the colors. Maybe try a narrow white border and then a wider soft green border to make it bigger and give the eyes a place to rest.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I have enjoyed this experience so much largely due to the support and interaction here from all of you. Now going to go rip out that bottom row of yellow so I can re-sew it the right direction!

    I must say ladies, you all worked so hard on this project and they all turned out great. I however am still working on roll roll cotton bowl.. If I would work on it a little more it might be done.

    Allets, thanks for the nice words..unfortunately, I still need a lot bigger than any proportionaly pleasing border can do, so I started cutting more strings, more wings and more squares to piece more QSTs, HSTs and flying geese wish me luck.

    I have finished my top- but it doesn't look finished to me. I think it needs a solid border, either gold or red. I am going to a class on Friday taught by Bonnie and am so glad I got this done to show her in person! Will post pics after the class.
    My DH is holding the top folded in half as I don't have room to lay it out. I only did seven by seven rows instead of the eight that Bonnie showed. My colors are red, gold and green. They don't show true in the picture.
