Holy moley! You weren't exaggerating!  That is one vibrant print.  It's gonna be perfect!

Plus that fabric reflects the sparks in my brain as I glared daggers at my DF as he broke the news once again that we had to pack up and move from the third place in Lexington to Buffalo ..... and then from Buffalo to Rochester ... and then the heartbreaker from Rochester to Akron during the autumn of my senior year of high school. (Although that time they boarded me out with my assistant Girl Scout leader and left me behind when they moved so I could graduate with my class.)

Dee, this looks a LOT like my quilt!! Believe it or not, I designed it, and made it in reds and tans.

Definitely a statement piece.  It's always a good thing to see a quilt come together and be finished.  Having watched and listened with enjoyment the tales of this quilt I'm saddened that it's so close to done.

**Clearly** a sequel must be made!

That is going to be a lovely quilt with a gorgeous backing.  I can hardly wait to see the finished product!

I will not make a sequel to my quilt!!  One per lifetime says Judy in Ohio .....

Instead I will throw down a challenge. Who's next?  Batter up to the home plate and take a swing ....

Who else has lived a life that can be laid out in quilt blocks? Go through Marcia's list of blocks at Quilter's Cache or the longer list in the index at Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Designs and those block names will really stimulate your imagination big time.

My only "rule" as such was absolutely no photos. No photo of my one and only wedding or me wearing my Mariner Girl Scout uniform, etc. Otherwise it was "My Quilt, My Rules" which gave me some hilarious moments (and discards).

Of all the adjectives in the famous thesaurus, Cris, I would not pick "lovely" to describe the quilt.

My loving daughter calls the quilt top a "doozy" as she smiles at it, but then she has always thought I had a great sense of humor. Her favorite block is the one that honors her great-grandfather Charlie Miller, the man who taught me to spit watermelon seeds and to work crossword puzzles.
