Moving right along ...


I'm making progress. See the two fabrics on on the right? The lighter one is for the side triangles and corner squares, then there will be a 2 inch dog tooth row, then the darker eggplant color. All of the diamonds are done, and most of the 8 diamonds are together, with a few of the large segments also together. Some of the paper is even gone!

I like it!

(But I DON'T like that carpeting! It looks worse than it really is! LOL)

Our quilt guild challenge in July is "Diamonds" but unfortunately, this is too large for the category! That's OK, I'm having fun. So much fun that I've already picked out the next project from Karen Stone.

I just love that pattern. The two other fabrics look just right with the star.

That top is so spectacular I didn't notice the carpeting at all - I had to go back to take a look when I read your comment LOL! I love the other fabrics you've chosen to go along with what you've done so far.

Wow, that top positively sparkles. The setting fabrics will show the star off to perfection.

This is a amazing star. All those tiny peaces put together. WOW. Quite a job. Looking forward to see the further progress on it.

Elaine,

Now that you have the star pieced together and the setting blocks and borders identified, the quilt is another winner. I saw another example at Lori's in the Bluffs that was too busy for me to enjoy. I think yours will be stunning!
