    I finished piecing this top today and the realization hit me square in the face---I cannot finish this quilt for Christmas. So I have left my sewing room and chilled this afternoon. I had a cup of coffee, made my grocery list for the family Christmas get together and I'll start planning my quilting tomorrow!

    This is a paper pieced pattern by Judy Neimeyer called Hawaiian Star. The colors are more brilliant than the photo and I am pretty happy with it even though I must work on the skills to do Y seams better.

    This is just plain awesome. Good for you for recognizing when you need to stop and smell the coffee. :lol:

    The colors look pretty great to me, so if they're even brighter in person this is one truly amazing piece of work. Wonderful job.

    Granny,
    Judy Neimeyer has her own website (google her) I think she still sells this pattern. I got mine from Batiks Plus.

    I bought it 2 years ago and had looked at it lovingly for the whole time. I was afraid to tackle it after I had read the instructions. But recently someone here on the board posted a picture of theirs and I was inspired.

    Thanks for your kind words. Merry Christmas!
    Roxanne

    Your quilt is beautiful! I have been there before--slowly the realization hits that you won't make a deadline and after accepting it things just feel so much better.

    Amazing quilt, love the colour combination. Glad to see you take a break and not rush to finish it before christmas - this beauty doesn't need to be rushed to completion.
