    2833 pieces!

    A while back, I came across http://frommycarolinahome.blogspot.ca/ She was just finishing her mystery quilt along called Scrap Dance Waltz and it looked fascinating--a great way to get rid of scraps, altho her samples using only two colours was just as beautiful. It took me a while but here it is and if I can, I will be renting time on a long arm and quilting it myself.

    So, here it is--608 HST's and 2833 pieces later. Thanks for looking.

    You did a supersize version!! Beautiful quilt. I've done a few of her mysteries, but always a smaller size.

    Stunning! It took courage to even start something like that, but it's well worth the effort!!

    It's beautiful... you did a wonderful job! So much movement there, it sort of "throbs". Love it!

    Amazing what "scraps" turn into when put together. Your quilt is beautiful!

    Looks fantastic.
