 Cheesy Me too! In fact, I have a whole box of matching fabric just waiting for the day where I'll have enough time, and start piecing it together! That's really lovely. Keep up the quilting action for all us procrastinators.

Lovely!  How long did it take for you to complete it?  It looks difficult!

Thanks everyone.It took a few months.I cut out pieces in layers,made it faster,and your sewing machine has the 1/4" mark on it,so I didn't need a sewing line,saves time! I have one last quilt to finish before I call it quits(my eyes are SOOO bad..tri-focals now) I like to machine piece quickly,then sit back and enjoy the hand-quilting.

While I love modern quilt designs...

Sometimes the classics are the best of all!  Very beautiful quilt.
