Oh my! I'm in love!!! I'm practically drooling right now. I want to make this, and I want to start today! It finishes 56"x56" and the star blocks are 6" but I am considering enlarging it to make a bed quilt. We need a new quilt for our bed. Our current one is 12 years old. Would you like to see it? You can at Judy Martin's website here -- it is looking much shabbier now. I had to cut off the binding and apply another (and the first was bias cut, but still frayed.) The problem is that I LOVE that quilt and haven't found another I loved as much. Until last night. I've actually considered remaking the original, but it is a square, and so it is a bit short on our queen-sized bed. This new quilt I could make a rectangle.
My plan is to make the star blocks 8" and enlarge the border, too. I already have the plan! I have the fabric! I have the excitement! I don't have the time.... shoot. My mother-in-law comes tomorrow night for 10 days. Maybe after. Of course, I have absolutely no business starting a major project right before moving. But it has happened before. Until then, I'm keeping the magazine with me, and stealing peaks as often as I want.
