    This quilt is worth every minute !! It is absolutely beautiful. I cannot even imagine hand quilting something like this. Great job, and thanks for sharing. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Oh this is simply divine, it's given me so much inspiration to carry on with my quilt, but I have to admit, I am too impatient to hand quilt, so mine is all by machine!! You have done a fantastic job!!

    That is beautiful. I want to do an Elenor Burns sampler but haven't had the time to get at it. Too many other projects are going on. I'd like to do just the dresden plate too with my scraps but that will take some time before I decide to look into those totes.

    Keep on quilting! Great work,
    Connie

    This is beautiful! Looks like it is worth every minute and stitch of those seven years.

    That is 1 beautiful quilt. 7 yrs....well, it will take me much longer than that I think. I really love your colors. I'm thinking of trying one of these sampler quilts...you have inspired me to move it closer to the top of my list...I guess I better get started if it is going to take me quite awhile to finish it...I love to quilt by hand too. Great quilt! :thumbup:

    Ann,
    It looks great! Don't feel bad, I took three years from start to finish on my first quilt. I am on my second king size quilt and it will be finished by Sept. 9, my daughter's wedding anniversary. However, it has also taken three years. I don't quilt every day and it is the therapy I get when I sit at my quilt frame and hand quilt. Now try for a second one. Yes, the quilt is for my oldest daughter. I have the fabric for the second daughter and need to get it pieced, ready for the frame.

    Yes I did I was attending a class and then left due to work commitments,so it put on the back burner then when I joined a P&Q group---you would call it a Quilting Bee--I think I then got on with it and finished it.

    Thank you for all you kind comments
