    That is wonderful - The stars look like bright flowers and really add such a fabulous dimension to a traditional postage stamp quilt. What a knock out!

    I don't respond to all the quilts, but yours is fabulous! It must have took a long time to make. All those squares. It is so scrappy and beautiful!!!!

    Great quilt, saved the picture for future inspiration. Love your colors. What size stars did you use?

    Just took another look and it got more interesting, the stars are wonky, I LOVE it!

    The little stars are 9 patches made with 2" squares. The larger stars are a 9 patch block constucted of 4-patch units and a center square of 3.5".

    It looks like a lot of work. I am sure it will be worth it though.

    Love the bright colors in your quilt. I especially love the stars. Not sure that I could stick to all of those tiny squares, but sometimes that is what my brain needs to just "veg out."
    Great job!!!
