    OMG Sue!! that is absolutely beautiful!!! I love the soft colors and the details. How could you NOT work on it for three years? I'd love being able to do work like that, I'm not good at "seeing" ideas, so my stuff always looks plain. Please post the finished throw so I can dream it is on my bed.

    That is so pretty. How big is it now? Is the embroidery done on machine or hand?

    What a gorgeous quilt! I love the light colors and the lace in it. It is so dainty looking. I have always wanted to do a crazy quilt, but never thought of doing it in those shades.

    It is beautiful. Now I can't wait to start collecting the material and lace to make one. What an inspiration. I am not great at embroidery, but get by.

    You did a fantastic job!

    Can't wait to see the finished job. Please don't let it take so long!:)

    I can't wait!

    Keep up the wonderful work and thanks for sharing! :) :)

    Punch needle is really just making lots of loops with a special needle and floss ..basically..you fill in your design with the color you want and making these loops...here is a pic of some I have done

    I am glad you showed this to us. I really want to make a crazy quilt someday and am saving things to put on one, lace and so on. I love the colors and designs in yours. It gives me more incentive after seeing how beautiful yours is. Great quilt.

    Very pretty and good for you getting it done. I know how much work these are. I got hooked after making a table runner. I've done round robins, dolls and charity project. I have been working on a Christmas skirt for over a year!
