    That is amazing. Experimenting with jellies? What a beauty. I love the colors

    Jean, that is wonderful! I have my M* blocks from the 2017 (?) retreat up next on my to do list, hope that turns out as great as your lone star.

    That is a beautiful and very different lone star than I've ever seen. What a gorgeous finish.

    Just beautiful. Are the blocks stitched with straight seams?

    They are strip pieced, then cut apart using a 45 degree ruler to form the diamond shapes. They are easy to make, but tricky to press flat as the edges are all on the bias and can get easily distorted in pressing. That is the key to success in making an 8 pointed star that lays flat. My first block that I made ended up distorted in the middle until I discovered how to press them without stretching the sides.

    That's a lovely quilt Jean, and that book is a keeper.

    We would love to have you come to a retreat. We've had international participants from Germany ( Andrea has come 3 times!) , 1 from the Netherlands, 2 gals from Australia and several from Canada. Let us know if you can plan on coming and we'll help with transportation to and from the airport.

    Wow when you decide to work on a UFO you don't mess around! It looks fabulous. Any time I worked with diamonds they don't lay as flat as yours and my project turns out looking horribly homemade, that is, wonky. You have it all figured out. Great job!
