I FINISHED!!! I think there is easily over 1,000 hours of work in this so far. I started more than a year ago, and there has been a lot of distractions in my life during this project. But I kept going and have loved every minute of making this top. This is by far the most fun I have ever had and my best work yet! Thanks Kim for your inspiration.
When I started this pattern I was posting the blocks here as I finished quite often. Then for some reason I got locked out and was unable to post anything (computer issue on my end)... plus a new job, a few days away for the Houston International Quilt Fest and many other distractions have kept me away for quite awhile. Happy to be be back and to be able to share the finished quilt top.
You will notice that I changed the 4 corners to my own design. I also did my own thing on the border... I found this giant rick rack that I just loved and I think it fits here really well.
I have found material for the backing and will be starting the hand quilting sometime early next year.
