    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!

    Thank you, Roben. It took me about 2 weeks to just quilt the thing. But it's going to its new home in Montana.

    Verrrry nice lee. I can see why you are cross-eyed. Those crisso-cross pinwheels must have been very confusing to put together. :thumbup:

    Gorgeous. All that machine quilting! You are far more patient than I am, and it pays off in your results!

    I can't believe you did all that quilting on your machine. You did such a wonderful job. I never could have! Congratulations to you.

    Loretta,

    The pattern is called Woven Stars and I found the pattern in a book called Amazingly Simple Star Quilts by Jeanne Stauffer & Sandra L. Hatch. The pattern itself was fairly easy. Like I've said before, it's the quilting designs that really throw me through a loop.

    On my 4th picture (the back of the quilt), it looks like a "bird's nest". It really isn't :roll: It's where the bobbin ran out and I ended up with the dark part of the varagated thread and it looks crappy :oops:

    Geogeous quilt but wasn't sewing those tiny nine patch blocks hard to hold on to or did you use the strip method?

    What a beautiful quilt!! The sashing sure sets off those stars perfectly.
