    Oh my! That's a lot of tiny little squares. I admire your patience.

    I second the “oh my”! My head hurts just thinking about all that piecing. Looks great though!

    That looks awesome! I love the little blue strips between the squares every now and then. It keeps the top from swimming. Good job.

    That is for sure a flood of brown scraps! I really like the separation of the blue between each row. Good job on a great finish.

    The blue strips do "anchor" the little squares.

    What size are your squares? This is stunning! I have to tell you though I get a bit dizzy with how it shows in the picture. It looks very restful though and that is something very special. My first thought was OMG! how on earth did you make this and how long! Just beautiful!

    I would say you must have used all the browns around the world in that quilt. Great quilt!!!

    Wow, Railroad! That's a lot of little squares. I really like it, but I'm afraid I don't have that much patience or time right now. Maybe someday . . .

    The squares start out at 1 1/2". They finish at 1", at least most of them do!

    Same here! I think I would have gone cross-eyed piecing that quilt!
