    I made this for a friend, who plans to give it to another friend :-) Every square has a meaning. It will be in the mail tomorrow! So excited to have this done!

    Looking at it, I was assuming that the various blocks have some special significance for the recipient. Very well done and that church is spectacular.

    Thanks everyone, I'm so thankful it is finished! It was one of the projects that I could feel hanging over my head. But it's done, it's done!

    Thanks Mary :-)

    Hehe, Tartan - I worked on this from the time I made that post yesterday until 3:15 in the morning.... I'm exhausted! But it will be mailed today and for that I'm very thankful! It took me a little longer because I went through all my sewing machine and all were broken! It took 2 different machines to finish this quilt. I also made a trip to the fabric store, only to find out that they didn't have any of the green, so I had to be creative with the border. The border is also acting as binding.

    I like the colors you used. Great job on the applique. I don't know the meaning of the squares....But, it's really pretty Nice detail work.
