    I am in the process of quilting it now. It is slow going as it is summertime.

    Thank you all so much for your kind words! Each time I have posted a px, you have all been so kind with your pats on the back! You encourage me to keep right on stitching!

    Tricia, I have had this done several years. I did this on my own, no BOM.
    (BTW, I grew up in Erath County, North Central TX!)

    At the time, there was not as much CW Repos available as we have now. (I would probably do things a tad differently if I were doing this now.) For the most part, it does have CW Repos used.
    I did substitute Thimbleberries on some & on some, I used a few that just looked like they "should" be CW Repos! :mrgreen:

    I learned more on this quilt than I have learned since 1993 when I began quilting. It is not all that hard after the first few...you learn as you go... it is time consuming though.
    I would work on a few rows & then do other things. But it IS addictive! You always wonder what the next block brings. (I did mine in rows & in order.)

    I am hand quilting(only kind I know how to do!) so I will be awhile. It is both a pleasure & a challange to hand quilt these blocks.

    OH MY! I have rambled long enough to write a book--- so sorry!

    Thanks again!!!! Riley

    I am soooooo impressed.. You did an amazing job picking fabric. I want to do one with bright colors because I always see it in repos. I have a hard time getting into the muddier brown colors. I can not believe you are hand quilting.... you go girl :thumbup:

    I think whatever you do this quilt in, Tricia, it will be a wonderful thing of beauty!

    I am handquilting because that is all I know how to do.

    Would you also faint if I told you I hand pieced the Jane Stickle Quilt? :mrgreen: That is my preferred method & almost everything I do is handpieced.

    (My DH is disabled & I can sit there & hand piece & quilt without running back & forth to check on him---so it is easier for me to do it that way!)

    YOUR quilt is also a beauty, BJ!!! WOW, lots of talented people here!

    Thanks again!!! Riley

    I just knew eveyone would post their beautiful quilts if I asked.

    BJ I love the quilt and bought the book recently. Just gathering fabric for it. The fabric is soooo important in this quilt. Yours is fantastic!!

    WOW all I can say is WOW!!! what an amazing quilt!!! What an accomplishment!!!


    As for me I think mine would be 2,000 in my Y2K quilt. I don't have a photo of it right now as it is packed away in storage until I move into my home. I will take one once I move and unpack the little darling!! :)
