    About 5 minutes away. from my bedroom window I can watch most of the fireworks and laser displays without getting cold or wet. About twenty years ago I had a caravan in the towers where the Theme hotel is now. I lived there all summer and went to work from there. It was fantastic. Now adays there are less cars going but more helicopters. Last time I went was about 6 years ago. I feel it has been spoilt. There is in the Theme park area the old building which was in |Living tv 'Most Haunted' this programme also took you down to the chained oak which is just outside the Theme Park .

    Hi Dotty, Technically your friend is correct as the original was not paper pieced, however things have moved on from there and anything that make it easier is alright in my book.

    Keep right on the way you feel happiest

    I'm still hanging in and learning from each of you. I am working on the weeks that were scheduled to be completed in June. Lot of life events keep happening. One of my sons had open heart surgery 10 days ago. He had two valves replaced. And....DH is having some significant health issues.
    Even though I share my trials with you, please know that my life is sooooo blessed.

    Hi Dotty, No you are not slow, some blocks took me simply ages. there are some blocks which are very complex in this quilt. Just keep plodding Like I did, you will get faster even on the complex ones believe me.

    Having said all that, I have not made any blocks for 2 days. Yikes lol

    Nope some take forever for me too and I am making 2 of each!! :shock: :shock: LOL And I haven't even gotten to the harder ones yet! :) That's why this project is so rewarding I think, because it's not one you can just throw together in a day, it's truly a labor of love. I figure if my quilting time was worth $30/hour, this quilt would cost well over $15,000!! :shock: :shock: It will be a family heirloom for sure.

    Cheers!
    Rachel
