    The color combinations give it a lot of movement. Good job!

    I love the contrast in your stars. It is absolutely the bomb. I hope my stars will turn out as well as yours. May take me two years to finish it. LOL
    ps- are you going to machine or hand quilt it?

    Oh, MAN! I'm so jealous of your PERFECT beautiful quilts! You just crank them out! I wish I lived near you. I'd be hanging around just watching all the time.

    I love this one. I hope you give it to some lucky family member who appreciates it.

    You never know if people really appreciate things. My mom quilted my cousin a gorgeous blue and white quilt as a house warming gift. She quilted it herself.

    And I made a pair of pillow cases with the scraps to go with it for my contribution to the house warming.

    It's been a few years now and the items have never left the closet. They weren't her colors.

    Cordelia... you can rest these aren't perfect...just that quick flash makes them look so good :D sorry about the work you spend into a quilt and it just sits there or used for a dog blanket....I don't give them to anyone..if they want them they have to at least give me what I have in it...then they will take care of it....seems like they don't understand it's not just the time but the love too...these are like kids to me...if nothing else We have one son and he will get them all when I'm gone..... Where have you been? Haven't noticed your two cents worth for days...is all okay??????

    I am swamped in work. No quilting for me this weekend. Drats. Keep posting your lovely pictures. I save them so I can look at them later. I save pictures of everybody's work and keep a sort of "computer scrap book."

    Also, do you blog?

    I notice a lot of quilters blog and display their work and it's fun to visit their sites and get links and ideas.

    I have a blog, but not for quilts yet. But, I woefully neglect it.

    Ok, I'm packing my bags and moving in with mom and dad. Can't let them work hard on those quilts. They'll need to take a break and I can fill in the gaps while they "vacation". :)

    Remember I'm computer illiterate so please forgive. I don't know how to post a private message so I'll have to do it "publicly." How DO you save the pictures? (I am so embarrassed.)

    Yours is beautiful and I love the bright colors
    I know, because I did that on the green/blue one I did for my grandson. The website I gave has the pattern for the HST version
