    Saw this book at the Long Beach Quilt Show, and decided to make it to use up some of my scraps. The color strips are all 1 1/2 inch strips. This was a challenge for me because I'm not the best piecer I'm more of an appliquer. Seems kinda tribal to me what do you think?

    You really learned a whole lot about piecing. 8 seams coming together in the middle of each block is pretty tricky to do. Your colors are fantastic. The background color really makes it POP!

    Love the secondary pattern of stars. Your piecing looks great to me.
    Your scrap stash made a very dynamic quilt. :thumbup:

    I'm not sure what to do about a border. In the pattern book where I got the pattern there was no border. I have to wait till I can use my LSQ longarm so maybe I'll see what you do first. It was a fun quilt to do I'll probably do another one some day.
