    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.

    Well, it sure looks like it would require some serious dedication, and maybe even a margarita, but I love your fabrics, and admire your skills. My thoughts are that you have done a most wonderful job on it.

    I'm way over my head on this one too; I hope mine turns out as great as yours. I'm a couple of months behind. It will be a beautiful quilt - that's what keeps me going. :thumbup:

    I too am struggling with this thing; I think they stayed up nights trying to figure out ways to make this quilt more difficult!! I certainly will avoid any of their patterns in the future.

    Thanks everyone - the positive comments really help keep me focused on the end result. But I'm afraid my favorite swear word with this project is not "smile" (HA!)
