    You started with six and it got bigger. You are officially a quilter. The quilt looks great.

    That's how it starts alright! You should name this "Topsy" since, like Topsy, it just "growed"! I'm interested in the name of this stunning quilt. I really love it!

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    The name comes the saying Bigger than Ben-Hur,, It was a samplier of all different blocks. I had fun doing them and seeing the outcome. It is now quilted and on my bed.
