Fast top

This is amazing....I started this morning at about 8:00a.m. finding the 3 fabrics I wanted to put in this quilt....cut and sewn together and have the top ready to be pieced in about 2 1/2 hours.  This is a quick and easy pattern, but it is so pretty!!!
This is about all you need to get started....ONLY 3 fabrics, pen for marking angels and a 10" square up ruler and a 24" ruler to mark angels.....how simple.  I did choose a cream background that is directional....so I had to be careful, but believe it or not....NO MISTAKES!!  The blocks are  9 1/2" raw.
This is the end product....without boarders, yet.  It went together pretty quickly and is finishing nicely.  This part will finish around 72X72.  The name of the pattern is "Carpenter's Star".
