      I think this is one of the most beautiful quilts I've ever seen. I love the colors. Do you have any idea how long it took to make it?

      Thanks! It was a lucky choice since it was only the second large quilt I had made. I must have been working on it for six months or so--the piecing wasn't so bad but I hand quilted it and that took a lot of time.

      This is one of my all-time favourite patterns.
      Luckly one day I´ll be able to one, but now it´s too much for me..
      Congratulations! It´s great!!
      :)

      Gayatri, this pattern and others like it can be done with strip piecing and that simplifies things A LOT. I think there are books and patterns available with strip piecing instructions. I have a book and a special Lone Star ruler from the late 80s but I have an idea that they may not be available any more.
