    It was never actually "finished", but at some point it became a quilt, and last Sunday it became a gift.

    Sara, bless you for sharing this MOST useful stitch!

    Marcella that's just beautiful. They seem really happy to have it. It looks "finished" to me. :D I love the turkey tracks (?) stitch you used. So neat!

    Thanks, you guys! That is the "turkey tracks" aka "crows foot" stitch that Sara Vincent taught us here

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/1753.page

    back on the 6th of August. JUST in the nick of time! I needed to stabilize that big house and the big tree and that was the very stitch I needed.



    The center block is 36 inches square.

    Wow, you used the "crows foot" stitch, and it worked in beautifully. Glad it was able to be utilized in such a fine manner. Remember that the crowsfoot can be aimed up, or down. It's a beautiful quilt. Sara
