"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?

  2. Thanks, the lay-out is taking quite a while so many blocks to arrange.

  3. I just followed your link from a post on the Quilting Board... This quilt is absolutely stunning! One of those "close my mouth now" quilts that takes your breath away. I LOVE stars; they are my favorite!... BUT, I don't think I'd ever even THINK of trying this, but it is outstanding!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! I'm a big fan of CW fabrics AND stars. I just ordered a bunch of 1850's/1860's fabrics from reproductionfabrics.com. I'm making a hand stitched hexagon/flower garden quilt from them to reproduce a facsimile of an antique doll quilt of the era. Happy to see someone else loves those fabrics too. Again, stunning quilt!
