Here are pictures of the quilt I just finished for my youngest son. It's a queen-sized quilt and by the time I got it finished, my eyes were crossed!

Loretta,

Thanks for the compliment :oops: In all reality, it was one of the easiest quilts that I've worked on.

Loretta,

This pattern took rectangles and squares to make the stars. It was really a snap. I've done the Ohio Star and it's pretty easy also.

Oh, gee, you make me (my free motion quiliting) look like a slob because I just throw some kind of design on there - not dense like yours - so I can get it done and on to the next quilt. Yours is gorgeous - such detail!
