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.

Video or it never happened!!!!
Wow!!! I love that backing.
I love that backing fabric! Definitely bold. And no-- we don't tire of hearing about your KK quilt.
It's available at Keepsake Quilting; I may be getting older and more feeble but I am still a darned good enabler.
I started working on a t-shirt graduation quilt last night and was so pleasantly surprised. The mom had gone through and washed and labeled the shirts: front & back, front only, back only. And she sent exactly how many shirts I told her. She is a school superintendent, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that she is organized and follows directions.
