Helen,

Here is a site that at least shows you what it is supposed to look like, but
I don't see any directions.

I went to Earlene Fowler's web site cuz she puts the patterns to the quilt
blocks used in the titles of her books, but Seven Sisters was there. Sorry.

Seven Sisters is in the August 2001 (current) issue of American
Patchwork & Quilting.  The instructions were developed by Marti
Mitchell.  I haven't checked but you may be able to see it on their
website, www.quiltvillage.com.

I'm actually working on a seven sister's quilt right now and am trying
to strip piece part of it.  I haven't decided whether it's faster yet
or not because after sewing the strips, the strips need to be cut in a
zigzag.  Plus several diamonds still need to be sewn to connect the
zigzag strips.  One block done, lots more to go.

Kim,  Thanks for you thoughts. I have never attempted diamonds so don't feel
to confident. My DH has seven sisters and I was thinking of making them each
a smallish ( a word?) wall***. Not sure on the colors. What colors are
you using? Hugs, Helen-WI

Wow, seven sisters, indeed!

I'm using blues on a natural background.  I went home and tried to
scan them for a webpage, but the result was a little strange.

Best of luck with your wall***s,

The BHG magazine version resolves the difficulties with all those inset
corners...it uses triangles only, and, if I recall correctly, pieces them in
**straight**  rows. Looks pretty good - and only the quilt police would
notice or care that it isn't made with diamonds.

Hi Helen,

I'm WAY behind with the ng but saw your post, have you gotten the answer you
are looking for?

I've just finished my Seven Sisters quilt - took a picture today in fact.  Mine
was done with English paper piecing - all by hand.  It was my 'take-along'
project for maybe 3 years!  You can see it 'in progress' on my website at:

http://home.t-online.de/home/Painke.Weigeldt/ewip1.htm

I got my directions from Quilters Newsletter and if you would like I could
photo copy it for you.

The August 2001 (current) issue of American Patchwork & Quilting has a new,
simplified way of piecing this traditional pattern.  It looks interesting.
Just picked up a copy of this magazine at Wal Mart today.
