One day I will make this. For now, I never tire of seeing the beautiful fabrics others have used. Thank you.

That is so sweet to say! My tip for this pattern: the pieces are BIG so the fabrics can be BIG prints.
I discovered one of the keys to producing beautiful quilts is pairing the right pattern with the right fabrics.
That sounds so simple. But for me it took some real farkles and then serious, honest evaluations to see why some quilts just did not "happen" despite exact piecing and lovely prints.
So your sweet compliment means I am finally learning how to make the "happen" happen!
Happy quilting to you.

Thank you for the tip, Karee. When I saw the pattern name as Tiny Dancer somewhere, I was afraid it was a small block. It took me a few times looking at it to realize it was actually quite large, though I wasn't sure how large as I don't have the pattern. Since I tend to gravitate to larger pattern fabric, this will work out great.

That looks GREAT! Well done. Fun fabrics and good workmanship.

Thanks again for the information. I didn't realize that Ballerina was a pattern of its own. I thought all of the quilts I was seeing were Tiny Dancer - it's hard to know the scale on the computer. Now I get it.

A beauty is right! Wow that looks great!

I made the Ballerina quilt for my sister for Christmas. I haven't quilted it yet but you have inspired me to move it up the list.

Cynthia: thank you! I feel inspired by so many creative people on the blogosphere. Hope you look to see the 2 diff ways I quilted that same pattern. Big pieces in blocks make the options endless.
