    I am impressed that it was all made by hand--when you go back and look at some of the blocks, that is alot of work! Very impressive indeed.

    Ok, i think i just saw something maybe nobody has noticed yet, this is incredible. The quilt is 108" across, there are 20 blocks, and a border, that makes each of the blocks 4inches with a 1/2" sashing around them, to equal 5 inches times 20 is 100 inches, plus 4 inches either side for border. Soooo, see how complicated some of those blocks are? Usually we see those blocks in 10" or 12" blocks, not in miniature 4" blocks! Thaat is what just struck me right now. Not just that it's an awesome quilt, but those blocks are only 4 inches each, unbelievable!

    Well Sondray - I MUST be nuts according to Quilting Aggi, but I did see an early thread a few weeks ago about the midget quilt and it REALLY caught my eye as if you read the thread you will know I had been fighting the day before with my quilting buddies for scraps...and this is the perfect project for all the small pieces I managed to salvage. I have sat in the sun this afternoon and done one using the english paper piecing method and I have to say, after trying foundation piecing on paper and vilene, I think THIS is how I will carry on, you have more opportunity of checking and double checking to make sure all your pieces are matching!!

    Heres a couple of pictures so you can see - they are 4"
