Margo, you're such a great cheerleader--helping everyone find a way to make it their own! Thanks for all you do.
I am looking forward to the whole year--I love piecing and there's no such thing as too much fabric for me--I love scrap quilts with many fabrics. But this project does lend itself to simplification--everyone can play!
I really understand some quilters are intimidated by all the pieces of Sue's 2009 BOM design, and/or just don't want to commit to the time to make such a complicated piece. I just wanted to show you what I played with in EQ6 this morning. I've just replaced the complicated elements with much simpler ones! Overlook the colors if these don't work for you (they are for my niece), but I wanted to show you that every element can be replaced with much simpler ones! There WILL NOT BE DIRECTIONS for this version, but all you have to do is replace your own block designs for the ones in the pattern. Just make sure that they finish to the specified size!
The center feathered star or the alternate center finish at 15", so just replace that unit with one of your own. Any 9 patch design will work nicely! Just enlarge the scale to fit 15"!
It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter
That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived !
