Friendship Star - in White Quilt

What are you most proud of? How bright the stars show up on the dark colors. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Something this large is not as easy to do - you must "fight" with the sewing machine, so be prepared unless you are lucky enough to have a long arm to quilt it with. I may make one suggestion - if you "quilt" it in pieces - like one row at a time then sew the rows together and then sew a "band" or sashing over that (on the backside) it may be easier. Good luck and I wish you much success What advice would you give someone starting this project?

What size blocks did you use?

I don't have it written down - but I believe they were ~20 inches square.
Dawn LaMotte asked:
I would love to have someone make this in these colors for my bed as I do not have the experience to do this yet and have only just started quilting and am doing the quilting by hand sewing as I have no sewing machine. Would love to get one for Christmas.
Deena answered:
I could make it for you if you agree on the price see my Etsy store on line and ask for a custom order and we can discuss it further if you would like www.etsy.com/shop/madewithLovebyDeena
