Is anyone having fun doing this quilt? If so, I bow to you. This thing is WAY over my skill set and I'm going to be so glad when its done! This picture is Month 9. Ugh!

Beautiful block! Looks hard, I agree. I'll have to google the quilt though. I love your fabs too!

It is hard, but I'm learning a lot and having a blast doing it. Month 7 was my pain. It called for odd measurements.

@sandpat....Keepsake quilting is offering it. The original quilt and pattern are from Homestead Hearth.

Lots and lots of 1/8, 3/8, 5/8 and 7/8ths in this quilt.

Month 7 wants 16th's of an inch. Although, it also offers an alternative block that is easier.

You may think it's way over your head, but you sure did a fine job on it. Also, think of all the things you learned pushing yourself with this block.
