    Dear Jane - completed

    SHE IS FINALLY DONE - sorry for the yelling, but I am so happy. This project - 17 months in the making, 225 pieced blocks, 5260 pieces, 1,015 hours, hand pieced and hand quilted - is one I don't want to do again. But WOW what a learning experience.

    Wow, what a fabulous quilt. I have the book but have not started one yet. I'm afraid I would never finish it. I like your bright colors, well actually I like everything about it. Congratulations on a job very well done. Peggy

    Every stitch well worth the 17mths it took to complete. It's a beautiful quilt. Well done you should be extremely proud of yourself.

    That is a stupendous quilt, and your phenomenal skills are evident. You should be jumping up and down and yelling for joy!

    I am working on DJ, and have decided to stop at 64 inside blocks and enough triangles for the outside. Yours is gorgeous!

    Wow gorgeous. So glad you had the patience to stick to it. I think I would be putting it behind glass so nothing ever happens to it I doubt you would want to do another one. Great job. Sue
