 Shocked Wow! What a lot of work, but a great result! Your kids are going to love and cherish these. I love the 'one hand drawn' square idea. Inspirational!

Wow! I love quilts, but I could never be patient enough to work on one for more than 1 hour or so at a time - it would likely take me a zillion years to finish it!
It really reminds me of a quilt my mother-in-law is making; same idea with the blocks of 2" squares, only the squares are folded into a base fabric to create a really intricate textural pattern as well as color pattern.
I hope you post pics of the finished product!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Sorry I missed this before, but WOW is it something. Quilting has so much love and heart in it, having this much time just makes it that much more special. Smiley

Wow that is incredible.

You'll have to share the finished product in all its detailed glory.
