    I got this pattern from http://piecemealquilts.wordpress.com/. Sandi made it easy! 900 squares in the center - I had to stay organized, a challenge for me! Hope you like it. Gifted to my little sister this weekend, I think it's my prettiest yet. Long way to go before I can make things come out as I picture them in my head, but I'm still enjoying the learning process.

    Wonderful! I love the straight-line quilting and the colors.

    And, I'm jealous of your grass -- we still have snow and it's 15 degrees this a.m.

    Lucky little sister! It took three minutes for me to see the pictures but I was determined to see your quilt after reading 900 squares. Wow!
