    It was on the back burner for a good time,it's a king size and all the material came from your lovely country when my Sister was visiting California and her family

    I just love it !!! My first quilt was a sampler, quilt as you go. It is a good learning quilt. Also, welcome to the board,it is fun to have fellow quilters from across the the pond. Donna

    My first real quilt (other than baby quilts) took me 7 years also. The quilting club in town told me a good quilt should take 7 years, so I felt proud that I finished in time.

    Beautiful colors and nice assortment of blocks! 7 years is a huge commitment of time. So what do you have planned next????

    Thank you for your kind comments---I was attending a Patchwork and Quilting class when i started this quilt,then stopped going when I knew what to do,that's why I didn't get on with it.

    Love the qult. Just starting a coule of samplers for my daughters - not that big though. Hope they don't take me 7 years - they will have changed their color scheme by then!!
