    I do have alot of patience. In fact, before I had even finished Shawna's quilt, I had been hired to make one for a woman in Mass. So, as soon as I finished Shawna's, I was making another one. It was out of warm colors, browns, golds, rust, red, greens. It was just suppose to be a "throw", but I made it 72" x 85". It was beautiful. I'll post pictures of it, titled Dawn's quilt. Watch for it.

    That really is beautiful!

    I'm curious - what is the size of each block? I'm wondering if it would be close to what I've been working on - it might help me visualize!

    Is it called something else?
    I never could find a pattern for it either. I looked for months, but I absolutely loved the pattern, so I made my own. I just saw a picture of one on eBay once. I didn't know much about quilting at the time, as I had only been quilting for about 6 months. I just used all 2 1/2" squares, not even realizing that that wouldn't work since some were squares in it and some were half squares. Then, I didn't know how big they should be, so I sewed all the like 4 patches together and then decided on a size and cut them down. It was hilarious! Check out the pictures I took.

    Some were 4" and some were mostly 3"

    It's a crumb quilt that will have sashing - I've been working on 6" blocks that will be sewn together to make 11.5" squares. I recently finished 204 of the 6" squares and I thought I was done - but looking at yours I'm now figuring that I will need 20 more. :cry:

    No pics - the last I knew, our camera wasn't working.

    I started this quilt on Sept. 1, 2009. I started a different quilt for my Sister-in-law in Aug. I finished it Nov. 16. It was a king size 110" x 110" 8 point star (6" with frame to make 9") out of greens. I made and completed my granddaughter, my husband, me, my youngest daughter April each rag quilts. I also made my oldest daughter Shawna a rag quilt, but my carpel tunnel was acting up so I couldn't clip it until Feb. Plus, I started the Field of Diamonds quilt that I'm working on now and made 28 blocks on it. But, I finished Shawna's quilt on Jan. 7th. I made this quilt in 4 months but in that 4 months, I also made a king size quilt and 5 rag quilts. I don't know how long it would of taken if I hadn't worked on anything but it. Oh yeah! And on Christmas Eve, I started on Dawn's Carpenter Star quilt that I posted. I had made 14 blocks for Dawn's before I finished Shawna's. Plus there were other blocks that we decided not to use after all in Shawna's quilt and the Field of Diamond blocks.
    So, I would guess that it would of probably taken 3 months or so, had I of just stuck to one at a time.

    As for the pieces in this quilt, there are 6,023 pieces in this top.
    It takes me almost 4 hours to make one block. All I do is quilt.
    I admit it! LOL I love it!
