    Why do I always do this?? Why do I always choose to do things that are never simple??

    There are 28 of these pieces to do all around the edge, THEN large black wedges to fill in between the pointed blocks, THEN a scalloped fabric pattern all around that has the corners mitered and matching the pattern.

    It is definately being sent out to hand quilt. I am Soooo done with it.

    Yes, it is a Beyer design. I was looking at her website the other day and they still have it but now the pieces are all pre-cut. I got this when it was just yardage. That's ok though since I am using the leftovers to make another star quilt.

    Oh, that is just beautiful. You may be sick of it now, but when you sit back and look at it you won't be able to miss how awesome it really is.

    My 3 children were Cesarean! :lol:

    I have a problem though... I have the PDF of the pattern pieces 1 through 5, which is for a SINGLE star. I'm doing the 4 stars together so the long area on all 4 sides is template 6. I have #6 cut out in template material from long ago and it is waaaayyy too long for the space, I mean like 4 inches. I don't have the PDF of #6 and #7 (which is the small border for that space).

    There has to be something wrong! I don't think it is my piecing since the whole thing is hand pieced right on the 1/4" seam lines and I checked it against the templates I used.

    I wrote to Jinny Beyer sales department asking for template 6 and 7. I included that picture of the quilt to show that I actually have it and not just asking for a free pattern.

    Pam. this quilt is nothing short of spectacular. I would't have even attempted something so difficult and it is already quite magnificent!

    All I can say is what a challenge!

    It is sure going to be beautiful. I've put off starting a Jinny Beyer kit that I bought because I know it wont be easy and I'll need to concentrate hard. I'm trying to finish off a few other projects first. I have to cut mine out too which is a bit daunting.
