    After months of stalking this thread, I finally made mine! Its the center of a quilt for my cousin who is graduating this year. So its his school colors. I have a lot more to add to the quilt, but so excited the center came out as well as it did! its 48x48. Sorry it's not the best quality picture, took it with my cell phone, I'll have a better pic when the quilt is done.

    Close, I did 6.5 and 7.25 to be safe and resquared them.

    Here is a pic with the border I did tonight. Next I'm adding French Braids to the top and bottom to add the length to the quilt.

    Thanks so much! I love the carpenters wheel/star. Another member on the board sent me the directions for her carpenter's block star that, when finished, is about 3 FEET square!! All my 12" or 18" practice blocks make up the back of the quilt. It was really easy & BIG!!!

    I love the pattern but I used a product called Thangles to cut all my half squares. The time required to make the block was cut in half.

    I have a question I am a new quilter and I have a question and I know it may sound silly but why do you cut some squares at 2 1/2 and some at 2 inches won't there be a problem when sewn together I know there is a 1/4 seam but still one will be smaller than the other I am sitting here today trying to make just one block and I am having trouble thanks so much I want to make this so bad can we make all the squares all the same size and make them about 3 1/2 inches thanks

    Thank you for the diagram and easy to follow instructions. This will be a fun block to make!
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
