I finally got around to uploading the picture of the quilt! Here it is halfway done. I think it looks really good. Now I just need a photo imaging program to make a mirror image so I can see what the finishe product will look like, LOL.

They were not individual squares. This was all strip piecing. I'd try to explain how it was done but I have an uncanny ability to confuse people when I try to explain things, LOL

I know what strip piecing is... still, all those strips! You still have the patience of a saint! Those look like very small strips! I can't wait to see this one finished.

What beautiful work and the I love the hues of all the colors.
Is this for yourself? I'm not so sure I could part with something so labor intensive.
I agree with the others, you are one patient quilter.

I am making this quilt for my cousin for her graduation present. It will bw hard to part with, but I can't wait to see the look on her face when she sees it.

its called a Trip Around the World or Sunshine and Shadows. There is the traditional which has fewer colors and bigger squares and the color splash which has more colors and smaller squares. I did the color splash so for the king size I needed 24 colors, and 2" strips

Heidi - you sure are growing in your quilting..

I love this. She will also.

Then you'll have to make one for yourself.

Maybe even inspire me to make a total quilt top, and quilt.
