This looks like a vey nice pattern to make a QOV quilt this winter. Would it be okay to do so? I love the way it looks so far.
Maxine, using this pattern for QOVs would be fantastic!

I woke up at 4 this morning wondering if the next steps were posted! When I finally checked at 5:15, there they were! It sure feels good to be sewing again. Thanks Judy for taking care of us. 🙂
Ha, ditto for me! Except the 5:15 part — I’m starting at 6:15, and looking forward to an absorbing quiet hour alone in my room.
I really like this pattern – thanks Judy!
Oh No….. I am behind, better get busy and play catch up.

Judy, I’m making mine big with 12 center blocks. Does that mean I need 34 of Step #2 blocks?
