I'm on my way!!

this quilt is going together so quickly!! I have all the strips cut for the big star and have the center pieced now I am just starting the second section. So far I am so very, very excited!! I hope that u'all can see how fast and easy this is coming together...

Just a few helpful hints.. don't wash your fabric the sizing in the fabric helps keep all those bias sides nice and straight.. and since this quilt will be antiquy look'n I love the fact that when I DO wash it (after it has been completely quilted and bound) it will start to get that wonderful quilty look!! (all crinkly)

Accurate cutting and sewing is essential this way you have all the diamonds the same shape!! and easy to piece when pinning the segments together.

I have one problem my design wall is not big enough!! I need a mansion!! does anyone have one they would like to donate so that I can have a kingsize design wall.. LOL

Take a look and see whatcha' think...

On the wall there is only the center and 2 pieces of the next section... as you can see it is going to be very large. When they said king they were not joking.

I thank you all for the comments I know once you see this you will post your pics for me to see... is just to hard to resist!!

Thanks to American Patchwork & Quilting... oh BTW.. I have not used any sizing on this as yet because of the sizing in the fabric already...just be careful when you are pressing don't over-do-it.

Well back to the next steps I have so much more fun to look forward to!!


  1. Go Girl! You are a machine! Lovely quilt - can't wait to see the whole top.

  2. just beautiful, I am amazed at how much you have done.
    how did you choose which fabric to put where???
    thats going to be the hardest thing for me
    fabric selection!
    I LOVE this quilt and am planning on making it too.

  3. It's looking great!! Keep us posted. Yes, a king size design wall is what is needed. My dining room table (11 feet long) was out of commission for a month when I was piecing this. Polly and Laurie
