    Finally finished this about an hour ago! I've got about 150 hours into this one! It was fun to start with but there's 120 squares and about 2/3 thru them I was getting quite bored with it! LOL

    That is unbelievable! You may have gotten bored with it 2/3rds of the way through, but I'll bet you'll never get bored looking at it on your nice bed.

    Now, PILLOW TIME! You must have scraps ... It needs two ruffly pillow shams and a couple assorted 14" pillows and pillow cases and a dust ruffle!

    Back to work with ya!

    Beautiful colors, beautiful job, beautiful quilt.

    This one goes out the door! LOL In fact, I will be sending it to its new owner tomorrow. It is for a wedding gift. My SIL's sister ordered it.

    Thank you all for the nice compliments.

    Thanks all!! There are 120 different fabrics for the blocks! I did repeat some of them for the four patches but did not repeat any for the main part of the blocks.
