    This quilt top took me 60 hours to finish. Lots of cutting. Lots of tiny, little pieces that required 1/8" inseams. Crazy!!!!! But, the baby came out beautifully (I think, anyway). It's 75 x 87. The pattern is by The Rabbit Factory. It's called "Around the Block." It will hang in our new house in Florida. This is my housewarming gift to myself. Thank you for looking!

    Thank you, Teresa. It's 100% pieced. I don't know how to applique (yet).

    That's incredible! I absolutely love it! My mom's a realtor and I'd love to make her a house quilt.

    I"ve had that pattern for years, haven't even started it, and can't believe how quickly you finished it. You must be a fast sewer. It is wonderful, and you know, if we really want something, we might as well get it, or do it for ourselves. :lol: Good luck on your move, when will it be? Soon?
