    Okay...I am not normally squeemish! For you landscape quilters...I stand in total awe!! I bought this pattern not realizing that was what it was...the angle from a landscape quilter! Okay...hit me w/the 'duh' stick...but, I refused to sew all those zillions of pieces together...so, I sorta changed it...a smidgen...and, it was a booger to do...but, I paper pieced where I could which made some serious directional sewing! I still have to add the trees, shutters, and ghosts....will I ever do this one ever again...never! Or anything like it....I am cured of any and all interest in possible landscaping quilting!! For you puzzle lovers and those that have the huge patience...this one is for you!:)I bought it at clotilde and it is called Haunted House..>Skeat

    The second pic is a closer-upper....I am not sure you can tell how many pieces are in a section

    Awesome, that is so cool, I luv it. But, Yikes, looks like a lot of little tiny pieces, not for me.

    Really you did a great job.

    You are probably sick of looking at it, I can take it off your hands if that would help. :-)

    Looks nice. There are an awful lot of little pieces! Just trim her up and unless you tell someone that there are mistakes, they will never notice!!

    You must have a lot of patience. I would never have finished it.
    I really like it.
