    I call this my quilt of quilts. There are 12 months of quilts. I only took a few pictures of the individual blocks.

    I haven't quilted it yet. I haven't completely decide how I want to do it. I am pretty sure I will hand quilt it but not sure how.

    FABULOUS!!!!

    Counted Cross Stitch, right? I also do CCS, never thought to do them in a quilt.

    Absolutely breathtaking!

    Mary-that is really pretty. You have put a LOT of time into that quilt-and it shows! Wonderful job. I think it should be "the mother of all quilts!"

    this is one about whether a hoop is required or not

    i have done smaller projects in round hoops and look forward to completing my current project to see how a larger project goes

    i have a quilt frame but i really like being able to move the hoop around in my lap as i don"t do well quilting with my hands in certain positions

    your project is beautiful and will be amazing when you"re complete

    fantastic work

    Those are not preprinted panels. I cross stitched each one of them. Needless to say it took me several years. I think about 7 years. They are done over uneven linen type fabric.

    I can cross stitch and that would be a good thing to do on vacations and the airplane. Did you have certain patterns for the different month's pictures? If I worked on something for seven years - no I probably wouldn't!!! That is certainly a treasure!!

    Wow, it is beautiful. As an avid cross stitcher I know what kind of time and work went into your blocks. I love Paula Vaughan's patterns. I have done a few but still have lots of her patterns that I want to do.... Someday. I'd almost be afraid to put them into a quilt, I wouldn't want anything to ruin my needlework. It's funny, I am an absolute perfectionist when it comes to my cross-stitch and I only work on one project at a time, (for the most part) but with quilting, I am not quite the perfectionist and I have (ahem) a few (15 or so) in the works. Great Job!!!!

    That's wonderful Mary!! I actually HAVE that cross stitching book myself! LOL I haven't done any of the patterns in it... one of those 'for the future' things. Awesome that you took it one huge step further! :)
