Normally, since I design patterns, I don't have time to make quilts from other designer's patterns. But my long arm quilter quilted a "Tribute to Judie" by Carol Hopkins Designs for one of our local quilt shops last year and I happened to be at her home the day she took it off her machine. We both absolutely fell in love with it. I am such a huge Civil War fabric fan. She and I traded fabrics and each came up with enough to make a queen sized quilt. Wow, what a lot of little pieces were needed to make about 350 star blocks 3 1/2" square. I am finally in the process of laying out the quilt. The blocks are set on point and I am using a variety of browns as the alternate blocks. Here are some pics of what I have laid out so far. I can't wait to finish it up and put it on my bed. Have any of you made this quilt?
