    Well folks here it is the quilt that has taken me 15 yrs ( that's right fifteen years). It's called the painted heart quilt and I got the pattern out of a Magazine 15 yrs ago. The hearts were to be stenciled but I appliqued them on and zig zagged around them. I machine pieced but hand quilted. My one goal this year was to finish it and I did!!! I have so many WIP and so many more projects I want to do. I have made a vow to myself as to never again take this long to finish a project. By the way, the quilt has been to West Va. Ohio, Virginia. and back to Ohio.

    That is great!! I had a project that I started in 1982 and finished in 2008. It was not a quilt though. I did the Nativity in needlepoint. 6 feet by 2 feet. 180,000 stitches. I can't show it here because of it being something other than quilting.

    I understand exactly where you are coming from. I am almost finished hand quilting a top that I started 14 years ago. I never want to do that again. In that 14 years I have learned a lot, especially about color, so now all I see in this quilt is what I should have done differently, which makes it even harder to finish. Your quilting is wonderful, any idea how many hours the quilting took?

    You took such good care of this quilt, even had enough fabric to finish it. And your handquilting! Wonderful
