    You did a great job with the plaids. I see what you mean about lining up the sashing - it really paid off!

    I know you think its "dreaded" but I sure think it turned out FANTASTIC.
    GREAT JOB!

    Well now!
    THat is just absolutely IMPRESSIVE!
    Just remember: You know more about that quilt than anyone else in the world will EVER know!
    You learned some good tips and shared them with us, and that is a good thing! And, you allowed yourself to have some fun! That had to be better than any old pillow fight you could have gotten into, right???
    I may be repeating what has been said before I chimed in, but I try to look at the pictures and give my first impression, so pay attention to the repeats among the quilters! Especially the good ones, because those are the truth!
    Good job!
    And just think! You are smarter today than you were a week ago ... life doesn't get any better than that, does it? :wink:

    You did good! I would love to see a picture of it farther back so I can see your timber house with it.

    Ok Mplsgirl - This is looking at the quilt from the kitchen (looking into the great room). You can see the vertical beams and the beams that support the second floor as well here.

    I don't see that it is not perfect. Your efforts came out great.
    I have to admit though, you've kind of scared me away from plaid stars!

    I always shy away from plaids and I think if I saw one in a kit I would run screaming the other direction. I'll have to say though...you did a great job! It looks just perfect in that spot and you have a lovely home!! :mrgreen:

    I'm going to have to reconsider that running away thing from the looks of yours. :wink:

    Thank you all - the quilt is growing on me!! The plaids drove me crazy, but they don't annoy me as much on the wall as they did in the sewing machine. :wink:

    The house was a multi-year project for our retirement. We are really excited about it and enjoy it greatly.

    GREAT wallhanging. Would look wonderful in my home! Working
    with plaids may be a pain in the butt, but definitely worth the work.

    You really did a beautiful job.....

    What a carefree jaunty personality it has. Looks like a winner to me :!: And you know what :?: --leaves or not--the colors make it perfect for a autumn wall hanging :) You done good :!:

    Here is one I made. All the stars are homespun plaids but none of the points are the same or match the center. I got the pattern on line
    I really like yours
