I also don't buy a lot of kits and this was the first one that I wasn't 100% happy with. I was lucky that there was enough fabric in the kit that I could make the adjustments.
    Karen, Good information re the pattern. I really liked the strip you added and am glad to hear the kit has excess material to use. I've already got the rulers it uses and I still just love the look of this. Thanks so much for your reply!

    that is beautiful. Thanks for letting me see it. You have a lucky son. I have no quilts for me. Just a top a daughter must finish and a few for great grands, 1 for my hubbys lap, and none for me. Someday maybe I'll have one for me. So many things to do. Lord the sea is so large and my boat is so small!!!

    Thanks for the pattern name. I love the Stonehenge fabric too. Sounds like a quilter's dream.
