Quilt Retreat

I finally decided what I want to work on at the retreat next month. I picked up this issue of AP&Q and I just love the quilt on the cover. However, I'm going to make a couple of changes. First I'm going to do the stars in 20 different batik fabrics for a multi-colour look, and second, I'm going to make the stars in 8 inch blocks instead of 4 inch blocks (I want a larger quilt). I already have the batiks, I just need to pick up the background and pick something for the small squares.

And I am under strict orders to post a picture of the BACK of the dress, she didn't like the first picture....LOL
