    Thanks everyone it was a fun project.

    I used this MonoPoly thread http://softexpressions.com/software/...SuMonopoly.php which is a very fine clear thread. That way I didn't have to worry too much if my stitching in the ditch didn't quite stay where I wanted it too. My machine seemed to like it so I think I will definately try it again on other projects, it was easier to use than an ordinary clear thread.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Your piecing is amazing. You are indeed very talented. It's a very difficult pattern to use as a first attempt. You have certainly set yourself a high standard for us to strive for. Thanks for sharing. Best of luck in the show. You will let us know, please?

    It is a beautiful mini. I can't even imagine sewing all those tiny pieces together.

    Very nice job. If you don't mind a suggestion, work on trying to make your bindings 1/4 inch, especially on mini's. You will surprized at the difference. Cut your binding 1 7/8 inch wide, fold in half lenghwise , sew on at 1/4 inch. I think you might like it.

    WOW!! I would never go there! If I did, it wouldn't turn out like yours - it would end up in a box somewhere as a UFO! You did a beautiful job! Love it!!!

    Beautiful, you must have a lot of patience and a very steady hand.

    It's gorgeous, and even more striking with the blue and white.

    Amazing quilt! Awesome! I've heard that the minis can take as long as a regular quilt. I believe it.

    Your quilt turned out great. But......I think when a person posts a mini quilt we should put something next to it, like a penny or a spool of thread so we have an idea of scale. Because without reading what you had written I would have never have thought it was a regular quilt. These mini quilts need more credit. They can be as much work as a full size quilt. Just my opinion, great job!

    Woody you amaze me. Everything you have attempted in quilting you have excelled at. This is no exception.
