    I am curious about what is the most pieces in a quilt top you have completed. I pieced one with over a thouand and I thought I would never get done sewing.

    A half square triangle counts as two pieces...etc

    I think I counted 1026 pieces when I put this together

    This is my parents 50th anniversary quilt. It was 1" squares and half triangles. All the diamonds on the border were fussy cut too. 48 diamonds around quilt border, and two diamonds in centre of quilt, to add up to 50 diamonds. The roses represent all the grandchildren, and the squares in the corner of the quilt are the sisters choice squares, to represent us four sisters. And of course double Irish chain cus my parents decendants is Irish. Sooo, i just added up the number of squares and half triangles lol...uhmmm...1450 lol lol Good thing i didn't know how many pieces were gonna be in this before i started it! lol lol lol

    When I do a charm quilt Ido't count any more. But I'm sure it is way over a thousand

    Your quilts are lovely, Ladies!

    I am not sure of the most pieces as only one of mine had a count of pieces. And that would be the Jane Stickle Quilt. It has 5,602 pieces in it, so the book says. I did not count them, however I did finish the quilt.

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