    Very nice. It would have taken me far longer than two years if I had hand pieced ... actually ... I would have given up after a few day :0

    I love the depth the contrast creates.

    Well done
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    That is a beautiful quilt. Don't see many quilts with that many pieces that are done by hand anymore. Congratulations on a job well done!!

    You certainly have accomplished something! Your quilt is beautiful. I started hand piecing the quilt shown in my avatar when my son was in high school...1998. I got tired of it and it's still waiting on me to get inspired again. I think I just wanted to be able to say I had hand pieced and quilted a quilt like my grandma Ruby. My other grandma, Frieda always did hers on the machine. Maybe I will finish the hand piecing on the front and just quilt it on my sewing machine in memory of both of them. haha Again, your quilt is stunning. Great job!

    Beautiful!
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    That's a lot of hand piecing and the results are totally awesome! (I find that hand quilting goes fairly fast if I keep it near at hand to grab when I head to the couch for a sit - it also keeps me awake in front of the telly!)
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Awesome number of pieces and work. I wouldn't let them make forts with it either. Enjoy your quilt, you certainly deserve to.
