    I ordered this pattern and when it came it was so tiny I could hardly see the little pieces. I had to blow it up on a copy machine to the size I thought I could work with. This one block has 118 pieces. WHEW..... There are three other blocks in the pattern, but I'll have to think about it before I attempt this again.

    Framed and matted for my sis. Sorry for the glare from the glass and the flash

    Enlarging it was brilliant. It's wonderful as framed art. I'm inspired, but I'm not sure I'd have the patience for that many pieces. I hope your sister knows how lucky she is!
