    I ordered this pattern and when it came it was so tiny I could hardly see the little pieces. I had to blow it up on a copy machine to the size I thought I could work with. This one block has 118 pieces. WHEW..... There are three other blocks in the pattern, but I'll have to think about it before I attempt this again.

    Framed and matted for my sis. Sorry for the glare from the glass and the flash

    Enlarging it was brilliant. It's wonderful as framed art. I'm inspired, but I'm not sure I'd have the patience for that many pieces. I hope your sister knows how lucky she is!

    Amazing! It is so gorgeous. I don't think I would ever tackle something with 118 pieces!

    I can understand why you would not like to tackle this again but I have to say you did a wonderful job and I am sure in the long run, well worth the effort.

    It is beautiful, but now you got me scared. I had bought 3 patterns that are a set. 2 have 6 blocks 8X10 and 1 is 10X14. I bought because paper pieceing seems to be the hardest and I wanted to overcome my fear of it. I just counted the easiest and there are 64 pieces and I know each piece has to be stitched on each side. All the others have so much more. I think I will enlarge 500% and learn that way or maybe they will go to future projects. Yours is so great, I don't know if I am ready.
