    This is one of my first more advanced quilts that I did as a block of the month. I started it in 2006 and completed it this month. Between the RA I have and my anguish over not having my points exact, it took awhile to get it done. I sent it to the quilter then I put on the prarie points. I am presently making the pillow shams as it is going on the guest bed.
    This is Nicole Chambers pattern "As Time Goes By". I purchased the floral fabric years before and was waiting for the right pattern. I selected other fabrics from the floral.

    Great job, and I love the fabrics you chose. I have RA, too, and know how hard it is some days with swollen knuckles and burning joints!

    I should have sent these pics too. The 1st was taken outside and the colors washed out. You can see the points are cut off.

    What wonderful compliments from such wonderful ladies who are great artists themselves. You have given me so much inspiration from your pics and stories. I have gathered a wealth of information. Thank You!

    I think you did a marvelous job and should pat yourself on the back. If you end up with a point that is not perfect only you will see it, the rest will see a gorgeous quilt.

    Absolutely stunning. Wonderful work. I've just started this pattern as a BOM at my LQS and will be making block 3 tomorrow. The sad part for me is only getting the instructions for one block each month - I'd like to charge ahead with it!

    Is "Intimidation" it's name! LOL Wow, that is pretty elaborate and it looks fantastic. I love the colors. You're pretty brave to continue after whatever they sent for a first block!

    Thanks to ya all! Yes it is called Intimidation. I cursed and sweated out every one of those blocks. Some were a little easier. (Thank You Lord)
    Those who have RA, keep working with your doc til you get the right med. And walk away the pain. If its a bad day just go 6 or 8 blocks and stay away from sweets and fats. I can tell the dif. Also get 8 hr zzz and svoid stress.
