    I am so glad you showed this quilt. You have given me an idea for making one out of garage sale finds. Thanks!

    Going to try adding some pics of each block... top to bottom left to right. I'm sorry that they're a bit wrinkled because I had to lay it out on my couch.

    I have a husband and kids, therefore, I need therapy and sewing is way cheaper than a psychiatrist.

    And finally row four. Whew! The mini quilt at the end is 4" X 4 1/2" finished. I hope they came out clear enough. I don't know why some of the colors came out funky!

    Just a quick update - she didn't do well at the state fair She got an Honorable mention and an award from the Thumbstall Quilt Guild for best use of embellishments.

    Bummer!

    Oh, well, there's always next year (and I'm already working on it! lol).

    This is a beautiful crazy quilt. So many that I see are so dark. Your quilt shines with light and detail. Way to go.

    OH it is lovely. The blocks are beautiful. Thanks for the upclose pictures. I made one and I loved working on it too. Your colors are beautiful.

    Tell me is the snake made of beads? I love the spider and web too.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Thank you, everyone! Your kind words make the sting of placing 4th after all that work not quite as ouchy. lol.

    Thanks, nygal. Yes, the snake is all beads. Took forever!
    Now, tell me, did you enter anything in the state fair? If not, you should! Everyone should, if only for the fun of it! Although, the waiting to see if you're going to feel elated or crushed is rather, well...crappy.

    Winner, Winner, Winner is all I can say. I shop thrift shops for fabric too. Unique. Good luck with the judges. I'm yearning to see individual pics of each block.

    Fabulous quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    You CAN zoom in and see the blocks better. Simply hold down the 'control' key while hitting the '+' key at the same time the # of times you want to enlarge it and voila! To reverse it all, repeat but use the '-' key instead the same # of times that you enlarged it! Hope this helps others too who would like a better view. Or just simply click on 'page', zoom, and enlarge 400% if you want.

    Beautiful quilt! Love the way you used the centers as the focal point of each block! This is right up my alley doing these kinds of things in quilts! Good luck at the show! Great job!

    Thanks everyone!

    There are pictures of the individual blocks a few pages back. I wish it would let me edit my beginning post!

    And for those that didn't catch it - it won fourth, plus the award for 'Best Use of Embellishments'.

    I'll be going out to the fairgrounds on Sunday to see the wonderful quilts that beat me out. I'm betting on at least a wholecloth

    To edit your post, just send QuiltnNan a PM telling her you'd like to add an addendum to your post and she'll add 'see addendum' to your thread title while you give her the section you want to add.

    Your quilt is a winner in our eyes! Blue ribbons to you from all of us!!
