What are you most proud of? Using out of my comfort zone fabrics-- this is now my most favorite quilt ever! I rarely get quilts to this state of doneness-- getting the large sections to match up was challenging.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The long strips in between each block are tremendously helpful to get things to match up. I am not one to buy extra supplies, but I used those paper triangles to help me with the borders and they were tremendously helpful-- had about 15 extras in fact!

Beautifull choice of colors! Fantastic the burning effect in the star...

Oh so nice: I love it! You inspire me to stop procrastinating. All of my blocks are complete through September, but I have yet to attack the final assembly with half square triangles and flying geese.

DO it! Just tackle one of the sections at a time-- its all divided up into quarters and it makes it really manageable!

Wonderful observation, and what a relief! Today's the day I start the assembly process. :D

What a gorgeous work of art!!!! I love the mix of wild patterns and colors. Just beautiful!! Isn't it fun to see all the different versions of basically the same pattern?
