What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think my Ohio Star block is kind of wimpy - might have to do some dec stitches or rethink the fabrics.

how cool I like the natrual colors in a quilt.

Thank you, martha! This quilt will be given to a friend of mine (friends for 45+ years).

Step away from Ohio star Darns! I love the autumn colours... lovely and warm which is not how I'm feeling right now ;-) Hey don't forget that when it's joined with the rest of it's family and quilted it will come out of it's shell... so mitts off!

OK, OK, I'll leave it alone. Warm & humid is what it is here today. Thunderstorm went through a little while ago & upped the muggy feeling. How cold do your winters get?

Oh you got the message LOL, that was easy. Cold enough for us to get snow and ice but today we are lost in a freezing cold fog. Sassy was so funny when I held her up to look out the window this morning, you could tell she couldn't believe what she was seeing... nothing lol.

Makes sense to me! Wallace heard the thunder, whined & immediately wanted back in the house. He totally freaks out over fireworks.

Wow -- Darns, your stuff just makes me happy. I swear I smile every time.

Looks beautiful to me - agree about warm tones - I thinks sometimes we are our own worst critics. Wish we had warm weather here at the moment - blowing a gale with the westerly winds and cold.

Thank you, Beth! I also love the warm tones in this - I guess I just like playing with color

Two more beauties! I LOVE the fussy Ohio center - wonderful fabric - it makes the block. Pretty, pretty, quilt in the making!

Thanks, Jean - the Ohio center fabric was the inspiration for the rest of the color choices - that fabric will be the sashing & border (if I have enough!)
