    I love that movie, I have my grand kids hooked on it.

    The quilt is not quite as beautiful as your daughter but is a very close second.

    Awwww... Now stop that, i mean it!
    Chasing Hawk, do you all quote lines to each other from that movie? Our family does all the time. Our two girls have the entire movie memorized it seems. If i question my hubby on something he says "I give you my word as a Spaniard" and i always say "No Good!". And when the kids leave the house we sometimes will stand at the door and shout after them "Have fun storming the castle!".
    The list goes on and on. We have a ball with it. Definitely one of our favorites!

    I am in love! Wonderfully done, tho you say not hard, your diamonds and intersections all have perfect points, especially difficult with intersection of 4 blocks. Bravo! Thank you.

    Really beautiful quilt! And beautiful daughter! 80 fabrics! How did you ever decide what goes where? Wow! Have not seen Princess Bride, so have to ask, what does "As you wish" mean?

    Oh do make an effort to see that movie. It is so funny! It is one of those ones that grows on you the more you watch it.
    The heroine, Buttercup, realizes that whenever the hero, Westley, says "As you wish" that he is really saying "I love you."
    For the fabric - first you sort it into two piles: darker, vivid fabrics in one pile and lighter softer colored fabrics in the other. Then you take each pile and as best you can (it's better if it isn't perfect) sort it into 4 main color groups. That is what makes up the quadrants of each diamond.
    The hardest part of making this quilt was prewashing and then heavily starching, air drying and ironing each piece of fabric before cutting it. That took quite awhile! You need to starch like that because the diamonds are cut on the bias and the starch helps them not to stretch when you sew the halves together.
