Marcia, that is one cute block!--and so thoughtful with all the details you put in it.  I bet it brings tears to her eyes.

Oh, my!  Totally amazing!  I wonder just how many miles of thread you used to do all of that applique?   I do some  applique, but only easy curves and no "fiddly" stuff.  Your talents are awesome.

I just had cataract surgery in both eyes ( a couple of weeks apart) and am struggling to adjust.  Although Much of my eyesight is improved, I can no longer see the up close and fine stuff--all blurry.  Hopefully in 3 weeks things will settle down and new prescription glasses will help.  Right now, I put on my DH's readers and I can see to thread a needle.  So, I couldn't even imagine doing the fine work that you do.

Would you be willing to print out small copies on plain computer paper of each digital photo, cut them apart and use a glue stick to work out a "map" of your quilt to use as a guide for piecing them together? 

that *is* a good idea.  I'll see what my patience level is.  :-)

So, all of my block images have been resized and printed out.  Now to play "move the tiles" on a 7x7 grid (which I also had to draw)  :-)

Ah, my primitive idea has been improved upon.  wink

That makes my jigsaw-puzzling heart very happy.

Not to mention my jigsaw-puzzling brain is thrilled to think that you will avoid making an annoying mistake that you would come to lament in later days if you had pieced together the first section and then realized that one of the early blocks truly belonged in the second section ...

Thank you Judy. For the bear quilt I wasn't thrilled with the coordinates Hobby Lobby had for the bear fabric so I went stash diving in my FQ drawers and got lucky to find some from Connecting Threads  that I thought were better. I had help too, I picked out 5 or 6 different ones and a friend helped me narrow it down to the barn red and the persimmon.
