YAY!! I Did It!!!


All 140 SBS blocks complete, sashed and together!!!
(not the greatest pic but its a big quilt to photograph & the lighting is bad, due to the weather)

This has been a huge learning quilt for me, but an amazing experience.

Ive survived Paper Piecing, Circular Seams, Y seams, Set in Seams, Needleturn Applique and so much more!!!
(well there may be some residual damage lol)
Ive made wonderful friendships with other SBS quilters, some who have finished, some who are still going!!
I feel that I now deserve the SBS pin Anne Ida gave me for my birthday!!!

But most importantly, Ive had fun!!
Now I just have to decide on some borders and how Im going to quilt it!!
(might sit on that one for a little while!!)
YAY!!!!!

Wow, Rose, congratulations! Simply stunning - I love the colour choices...
I just made my 1st SBS block a while ago {o.k., it was just the nine patch, but my fabric is chosen...} and I've the most respect for those who actually sew ALL hundred and fourty blocks.
I'm sure you'll find a great solution for the borders.
Cheers, Julia
