They did not give credit to the Machine Quilter, Brenda Weien of Ottawa, KS, who did an amazing job on the quilting!
In the magazine they rate the pattern as Intermediate, but on their website they rate it as Challenging! You pick! I would rate it Intermediate for setting blocks and Advanced for the star blocks. I paper pieced much of it, but their instructions have you rotary cut and strip-piece the whole quilt. Not that difficult in my opinion. The star blocks do take some time because of all the pieces, but they are not difficult. I did most of them at a retreat and had a blast watching them come together.
If you receive the Fons & Porter’s LOVE OF QUILTING Newsletter, there is a link to the quilt in the December 25. 2012 issue.
