Thank you!

It was fun to make and come up with ideas for the fields, and pretty easy to sew, just a bit time consuming. Sewing the fields together at the end took about 5 hours. But that might just be me getting distracted watching Castle Wink

So does each "field" have its own backing which is folded over to the front as binding?  That's what it looks like and that looks like a lot of work  Cheesy  It looks terrific<

Thanks!

Yep, each field was made separately, which made it easier to sew details on, then I sewed them together at the end. I was so relieved that they fitted!

This is so cute... I love all the different textures you used...
I quilt, and now I'm thinking that a rag quilt with different textures would be really cool..rather than the traditional flannel rag quilts..I guess I now have a project for the winter!

Amazing and beautiful!!!  I love the fabrics you chose, and how if you looked at them pre-stitching you might not imagine they would work as well as they do.  That is meant to be a compliment about your vision and creativity - I hope it came across that way!  You just did beautiful work.  This is a family heirloom treasure!
