    Need to enter it into a quilt show, this must win a blue ribbon. How long did it take you to make this?

    Yes, I left off the squared blocks.

    How long did it take you to make this?
    I started it I think the middle of 2007 It took be about 9 mos working weekends and sometimes an hour or two during the week. The quilting is what took so long. To make this short, I had a lady at the LQS where I purchased the fabric to quilt it. She was one of those I learned that had good intentions but never followed through. Her partner made her sell her part of the store because of this. She took my quilt to her house and was going to quilt it there. I didn't know this for about 3 wks. After 6 mos of it being at her house I went and got it and took it to the LQS in my town (where I purchased the pattern). She had it about a month, because of her backlog.

    That is absolutely amazing! If you are using it as a wall hanging, where did you put the hanging sleeve? Yeah, I know, on the back. What I mean is how far down from the top? Or are you going to use clips?
    Was it a pattern you'd recommend to others? I'd love to give it a try!!!!

    Wow, that is incredible. The blocks are gorgeous enough, but all that curved binding is beyond belief! What a work of art, you should be soooo proud of yourself.

    My DH and I are still working on that. In order for it to hang properly and not sag anywhere you almost have to have something to stablize each circle on the outside. We have an idea working but not sure yet. See what you all think, Put small sleeves (closed on three sides) in the binding area and then slide flat rods or stiff plastic rods (has to be flush with the back) in the sleeves. They come together in the middle similar to an umbrella, that way if you need to transport it somewhere just pull out the frame, fold the wall hanging and then reinsert the frame. If it can be done my DH can do it! My concern is the sleeves. If I don't want the
    sewing to show in the binding I will have to hand sew them on.

    You definitely have to have a design board to do this.

    The name of this pattern is Crown of Thorns by Judy Neiymer(?) never can spell her name right. It is paper pieced. Once you do 2 or 3 of the circles the rest are easy. Getting past the first few is the hardest. After that you have a rhythm going. It is originally a squared quilt, I just left off the blocks and border. The quilt has a beautiful and unusal border.
