    Ok now that I have re-started my heart,that is soooooo beautiful. Those tiny little bitty logs , omg . My chin fell on my computer table. That lady must be out of her mind . hehehe How long did it take to make the top? This inquiring mind needs to know. hehehhe
    And the quilting , takes my breath away. Beautiful. Now I only need to find a heart doctor , an eye doctor and a chin strap. hehehee

    Thanks, everyone ...........I felt blessed she trusted me with the quilt!!

    Noisynana -- You are so funny!!! I have no idea how long it took, but I KNOW it was a very short time. Marie is a FAST sewer............seems it was only a month or two but she may have been doing it without my knowledge.

    This quilt "Eldon" was the featured project at a quilt retreat I went to. Finding just the right fabrics took awhile. The pattern is supposed to be scrappy, but I wanted something different. Then it took me 2 whole days to cut all the pieces out. I think I got 4 of the stars and several of the log cabin blocks done at the retreat. At the time I was working full time so I worked on the quilt on the weekends. I listen to books on tape while quilting and I know I listened to the whole "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and the "Hobbit" while I finished it.

    To those of you who want to make this quilt be warned that it has very few straight seams. It is nothing but Y seams. If you take on this pattern you will be an expert in Y seams when you are finished.

    I loved how this quilt turned out. Dee's quilting is stunning. I plan on entering this quilt in the Sister's Quilt Show next summer. My first entry into a quilt show.

    Thank you all for your kind words.

    Absolutely stunning; it looks more than red, white and blue as it has so much depth. I love it.
