What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a simple pattern made even easier with a terrific tool: Quilt-in-a-Day's 9-1/2" Triangle Square-Up Ruler.

Beautiful! Love the rich dark red & cream! Would be beautiful too for a front door hanging (with a monogram Initial in the center).

Thank you! It makes a great Christmas Table Topper, too.

I love the Carpenter's Wife quilting pattern. Is that a beginner or intermediate project? Just asking because I have just finished my first quilt (just square blocks) but now want to branch out to something else. I have been bitten by the quilting bug! I see quilting shapes in everything, lol. It may be your use of color, or the rows of border, but I would love to make one for a Christmas gift using winter colors. When I started my quilt, I didn't know if I'd be successful at it and didn't want to invest in an expensive machine just yet, so I bought a Brother regular machine at Wal-Mart. So far, I love it. I guess another question I have is that while it probably wouldn't do anything except the basics, can a "regular" sewing machine make beautiful quilts that will hold up through the years? I hope to learn loops and stipple stitches in order to quilt my own work. (At this stage anyway). But thank you for all the inspiration I'm getting!

Thank you, SSH! The Carpenter's Wife pattern is an excellent beginner project, the next step from squares. The Carpenter's Star quilt is a more simplified version, and because it only uses three prints you can learn some great piecing shortcuts. With the Carpenter's Wife pattern you will spend more time designing so you can balance the variety of prints and colors. Either one will look super in winter colors. Enjoy!
