This a another project I picked up on 1/27/2012 at the quilt show in Statesville earlier this year.
Photo on the left is the fabrics in the quilt kit.
Photo on the right was taken of the quilt at the show.
May 18: I spent several hours just getting familiar with the design by drawing it into EQ7. The pattern is mostly 1/2 square triangles with a few rectangles where possible.
May 19: Cut out all the pieces. Marked the triangles. Sewed the squares & cut into triangles.
May 20: Ironed open the squares and started the layout in the center. Must layout entire rows so I can sew one row at a time. This is so fascinating to observe.
May 21: Sewing the rows. The rows are together.
May 23: Half is together.
May 24: Only 1 border to go.
May 25: Quilt top finished.

Thanks, Dorothy. It is going to be huge! Larger than I like anyway. Thanks, dear. It is in ways unlike anything I have done - like a puzzle. Then again, it is quite like Northwoods Double Star except there I actually made blocks and then connected them. Here it is row by row. Today I get to connect those rows.

LOL. I moved them to the table and then 2 by 2 to the sewing machine and then back to the table. Half is together & the other half is in strips of two. Maybe tomorrow, I'll get it together and ironed.
