    My mom started one for my 60th birthday. About 9 months before my birthday she apparently started saying to my Dad that she wasn't going to finish...but Dad kept encouraging and said that since I would be retiring the June prior to my birthday I could help finish it. Well In June 2008, I did retire and 10 days later Dad passed away. My birthday was in Nov. 2008. Mom bundled all the strips she had done into a box and when I opened it, of course I was shocked! It took us a year, but we did finish this beautiful king-sized quilt. I am so greatful to have it! Your was will be loved as well!

    LOVE the use of trendy batiks in an old fashioned pattern!

    Looking great!! Don't you just love Eddie's tutes??
    I did one from that tutorial too, last year, and he makes it easy to understand. And once you are done with it, it is heavy enough, there is no need for batting and further quilting.

    I started one, too about two months ago, but I got sidetracked- as usual! Yours is going to be beautiful!

    I made one too a couple years ago. Its not perfect but its mine. It takes a while to do but very rewarding when you do all those little squares!!!

    Very pretty. I'm getting ready to teach this to my Monday class.
    I made one several years ago and I use it as a wall hanging, throw and sometimes as a table cloth.

    What is the final size that you are going for? I'm guessing a queen? It is very beautiful.

    Your quilt in the Avatar is beautiful, assuming it is the one you referred to above. Nice job.

    Little Hud - Be sure and update us on your progress. Looks very pretty. Are you machine stitching like Eddie or doing the squares by hand?

I ordered two and a half bolts of the light blue fabric for the backing and spent a lot of time cutting out close to 900 little squares for the windows. I couldn't wait to start it. It's coming together nicely ( notice I didn't say perfectly because it's far from that ). Hope you enjoy the pic of my beginning. Some of the windows are just pinned but not finished.
    what on earth made us want to make this quilt. I too am in the middle of one. It is suppose to be my nephews wedding quilt, it is looking like is going to be there 5th anniversary quilt. But they are so pretty. good job
    LOL I made this very quilt for my daughter's high school graduation. I think she got it 3 years after graduation! That was 23 years ago and I have just started quilting again.

    I am in the middle of one myself. Doing it all by hand. If they weren't so pretty, I would never finish it. Can't even think about the hours I have in it. Yours is very very pretty!
