So glad this potential "forever project" is off my plate

WTG!   Now, for the next Forever Project!  :-)

Ami, that certainly is a masterpiece of a quilt top.

A really-o, truly-o masterpiece with a capital M.

A true Masterpiece of a quilt top.

For anyone who has forgotten the URL for Ami's blog, check out this Masterpiece quilt top at

Can you tell that I am in awe? 

Thank for the wonderful compliment Judy! It was kinda an obsession the last 6 weeks to get it done. I started this project 3 years ago and it stalled when I got to the applique.  I kinda decided I really just wanted it done so I powered thru it

Well, kiddo, when you make up your mind to "power through" something, you are unstoppable.  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

WOW, that looks wonderful.  I hadn't seen the entire thing, love the mix of pieced and applique.  anxious to see your quilting on it.

That "mix" is why I am calling it a masterpiece ... the pieced part is more or less "normal" but the applique just sends the quilt over the moon, so to speak.

I would say that when I make up my mind something needs to get done then I get it done. 

Thanks Dee. I am excited to quilt this as well. The background was a solid on purpose so I could do some really fancy quilting. There are a few things ahead of this (your quilt and a few others). That will ensure that I get to this one soon. I also have one of mine ahead of it as well. My goal is that this must be quilted and bound by the end of the year.

I'm so glad you "powered through".  That quilt is beyond amazing!  I love that little squirrel!

Thanks Lynne! The squirrels were a real challenge but now that they are done I think they will make more appearances on future quilts. I am always drawn to pieced quilts with applique. In fact my forever quilt I finished last winter is also a log cabin with an applique border. It is not on my blog yet because I want a really nice photo shoot of that one. I did put it on the facebook challenge Ellen nominated me for.
