    This is a long-overdue wedding quilt that was intended to be a queen size . . . It's from a book called "Quick Rotary Cutter Quilts" ["Quick"? NOT!] Each 10 1/2" block has 140 pieces, 139 seams and 15 match points in the last 10 1/2" seam. I guess I thought if they called t "quick" it must be "easy" too. Far beyond my ability, but I persevered . . . at least enough to make a good sized wall hanging. (The wedding couple just celebrated their 6th anniversary and had their first baby!) I think I'll encourage them to hang it high on the wall where it can't be inspected too closely :oops: However, given the above stats, I'm fairly pleased with it.

    you did a lovely job! I hope you are proud of your accomplishment...much better to finish it than to leave it forever undone. On a separate note, I gues you don't have an extra 12 blocks hanging around for the yellow and blue swap? hey.....clam down.....I was just kidding! Seriously though great job!

    That's pretty!
    Sure would look wonderful as a quilt, but with all those pieces? Yep, I would have stopped at wallhanging too! lol
