    I started this Joann kit over 10 years ago. It was back when I was hand piecing and hand appl. all my blocks. Probably in the 90s.

    I got a machine quilter to do the top and just finished the binding this morning. Hooray.

    A friend immediately asked to buy it. Maybe she will get it for her birthday.

    Wow! Are those the original kit fabrics? It's gorgeous!

    I *have* this kit! Bought it last year on eBay for my sister's Christmas present, then discovered that the pieces were not pre-cut. (She needs pre-cut.) I was going to sell it on the QB, but maybe I will re-think that and make it up myself.

    For anyone who's interested, it is the "Century Quilt" from JoAnn Fabrics, sold in 2000.

    Remember that I hand pieced it and I had plenty of fabric. I am a very frugal cutter and made the most of it.

    I think it was wiser to give us the fabric than to have the issues they had with the precuts.
