I'm a lurker and shy and have never ever posted anything before but just have to come out of hiding to say how unfreakingbelievable that quilt is. It is breathtakingly awesome. Gorgeous, fun, and just wow. Wow, wow, wow!

Just for curiosity's sake, is this the only project you've worked on since May (trying to gauge how long something like this would take)?   I picked up a quilt book a few years ago (on cats, to make for my daughter), and never got around to doing it (bought fabric, pieced together a very simple top (6 pieces), and my plans to make it reversible (put something cool on the back) were thwarted by DD saying she wasn't really all that interested in it anymore). 

hi muria!
this was definitely NOT the only thing that i worked on. i spent about 2 or 3 weeks doing just the character blocks off and on. they then sat in a stack for about 3 or 4 weeks before i started cutting out the green and black pieces for the sashing. it took me about 2 weeks, working an hour here and an hour there, to get the quilt top done. after the top was done, it sat around for a month or two before i had a chance to get my long-arm lessons in and then actually quilt it. it then took another 3 weeks or so before i put the binding and the hanging sleeve on. i've done alot of other projects over the course, but i'm also in my first year of teaching school and things have been crazy! so, i probably could've gotten it done a loooooooong time ago, but i ended up having to work on it in bits and pieces. so don't get discouraged! it's really not too bad once you get on a roll. things actually go together alot more quickly than you'd expect. but the nice thing is that you don't HAVE to finish it NOW. you can spend alot of time and do one block a week if you want to. i always take forever to finish stuff (especially quilts), but when it finally is finshed, i always feel good about my work because i didn't rush through and make alot of mistakes. i hope this made you feel a little better about the amount of time quilting takes. and hey, if your daughter isn't interested in the project anymore, then keep it for yourself!  Wink

I LOVE IT!!! But I know I could probably never make a whole quilt...but I could make a pillow or two...so I just bought the book from Amazon...

Thanks for the inspiration!

wow that's amazing!!! i love it.

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.

Did you use a pattern?  This is really awesome.  I would love a copy of the pattern.  You did a really great job.  My husband & children would love it.
