The whole top


That's it. The whole enchilada! Well, not the WHOLE, quite -- no backing, no quilting, no binding, no hanging sleeve ... but the piecing is done! Whoopee! Hurray! I did the math, it came to 1520 pieces. A few were sacrificed to make the center square and a few others to square up th corners. So a nice round 1500 will be close enough. This is the last time I'll bore those who read this frequently with this quilt. I'll drudge on and do the necessary remainder but I'll show other photos and talk about other things hereafter. What a big sigh of relief!!!

It's gorgeous! I'm with Evelyn--we're gonna need one final picture.

I've forgotten: how big is it?

I was going to say it was gorgeous, but I've changed my mind. It's dazzling . . . or, as the French say, "eblouissant." (Hope I can remember my francais from 1970!)
