    I just completed this complicated quilt top my GD picked out of a quilt magazine for her HS graduation gift. I have been working on this off and on for about 5 months. It has 77 pieces in each block!
    It is called "New Mexico block". All in Batik fabric. Has anyone of you ever made a quilt using this block? Talk about hard!!! So much to match up, I was so afraid I couldn't do it. I have some boo boos in it (points don't match exactly in some places). Will be sending it off to machine quilt land....I won't be doing this again for a long time.....
    Sorry it's a little fuzzy looking.

    You are entirely too critical of yourself. It looks awesome and you did a great job despite the complexity of the block. You pushed yourself further and you should be proud of this accomplishment.

    We are always our own worst quilt police. As I ride by on my galloping horse, I do not see your oops!

    GREAT JOB!

    You may notice those mismatched blocks, but no one else will. Great quilt!

    It looks like it was worth the effort. She will enjoy it for many, many years.

    I love it! The more complicated the more satisfaction when finished. At least that's what I try to tell myself when I get in over my head. You did a wonderful job!
