"Tribute to Judie" my latest work in progress

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?
