Here are some "in progress" pics of the Spring quilt I am making.

I had to add the Irish Chain/9 patch blocks to make it a king size. I did not have enough and can't get more of the tea cup fabric. Improvisation seems to be my middle name!

I don't know why but the colors in these pics is awful. The yellow is subtle, and the blues that look turquoise are really french blue and royal blue. Oh well!

Here is my EQ drawing of the finished quilt. The borders will be different though.

FASCINATING!!! i love that pattern. is it my imagination or did you change the prairie star just a bit in the corners? it seems different to the drawing. design on the fly. you have great talent. :P :P :P

Thanks Patrice and all!

No, that is the real Prairie Star. Couldn't find exact same in my EQ5 blocks, so I did the closest, just to figure placement and colors.
