    I have been working on this for a few weeks.

    It is huge and weighs a tonne, and I still left the last round off, which would have added another 16 inches to each side :shock:

    There is over 900 2" half square triangles. And the colour is much brighter in real life.

    Better thee than me. That looks like an awful lot of work, although I am sure it will be even more spectacular when you are done.

    Thanks for you kindness...

    I could only work on it on the weekends - I have a fulltime job.

    Beautiful quilt! But 2" HST? I can do 2" squares, but not 2" triangles. You are commended for sticking with it.
