    I finally finished (with the exception of the border - need to buy some fabric) the BOM I started 4 years ago. Sorry the picture is a little crooked.

    Pretty Pretty!! Great Job. I have never totally finished any of the 7 or 8 block of the month's I've done. Got blocks done, just never put the whole thing together.

    Thanks guys! Yes, it does feel good to have it almost finished. I think I'm going to send it out to be quilted, if I try, it will be another 4 years before it's done!

    I'd love to take credit for the colors, but with this BOM, the fabric was shipped each month. It's the Womens Voices from Keepsake Quilting.

    PS - Sorry Sharon, I've waited tooooooo long to let this one go!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Vicki--I recognized your BOM right away. I have been eyeing it in the Keepsake catalog for a long time.....Drool. You have done a fantastic job. As soon as your picture popped up-you got an "oh, wow" from me!! :D

    Absolutely beautiful. I, too, saw it in the Keepsake Quilting catalog. Your piecing is perfect.

    I think I should also mention that I replaced one of the months (think it was 11) with two other blocks. That month just had way too many little triangles. I figured I'd just put it away again if I tried that block, so I replaced it with the bear paw and dandy block.

    Thanks again, everyone, for your nice comments :mrgreen:

    Yeahhhhh, all done, good for you. When you started, did you buy a certain amount of matching fabrics? I have wanted to begin a BOM ,but how do you know the amounts of fabrics to purchase to be able to complete the whole piece?...
