Wanted to show you my finally finished Captain Picard quilt. Made for a couple of very special trekkies for their wedding. It is queen sized, made with about 4500 2" squares. I started it in April and just finished it Friday - in time for the wedding rehearsal! Edit: Here is the link to my blog post about this!  http://candycoatedquilts.blogspot.ca/2013/08/oh-captain-my-captain.html

Well done! I can't let my boyfriend see this. Otherwise, I'll be spending a year trying to make a picard quilt half as good as yours. Tongue

    Phenomenal. I can't believe you only started in April.  That would be a lifetime project for me.

    I saw the thumbnail, and I had no idea that the project was so big! It looks so good.  :  )

    I'm a geek, and I dispatch for a bunch of geek cops. I like writing, playing video games, and making messes while attempting to craft.

    I'd love to do personal swaps if something I do is interesting to you. I love doing themed swaps.
