    Bonnie Hunter's "Perkiomen Daydream" Omaha style

    10,000 pieces, finishing to 1" square, 100" x 100". Started in October 2014, finished 2-26-15. Bonnie Hunter's book, Scraps and Shirttails book. My trick to stay motivated, was to put on my favorite Netflix series, and sew for a couple of hours at a time. I pinned the strata sections into packs of 10, so it was simple to keep track of where I was because I needed 400 of each strata. In no time at all, I had 5 baskets with the needed 400 strata of each. Then the assembly began.

    That looks fantastic! No way would I even attempt a project like that.

    Good Lord!!! It only took a bit over a year? Did you cut 1/12 inch strips and then sub cut them into strips? i have made one with two inch strips and that was difficult. I can't imagine using anything smaller. You mut have the patience of a Saint. LOL

    OMG! That is gorgeous!
    If I'm too busy to quilt, something else has to go.

    What a fabulous quilt. I too work in very small pieces on the majority of my quilts... so I know the diligence it takes to create this master piece . Awesome!

    Simply fantastic!!! I love working with small pieces ... this quilt is right up my alley!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    well done you! I like working with small pieces also, I can't see the point of 'hurry' when it comes to quilts
