Done!

Whew........196 Dutch Treat blocks are done!!!!!

Last night I finished............
Lace
Picture Frame
I started these April 23, 2008..a day before starting my Dear Jane (still 11 blocks to go on the center of that one). I took some longish breaks here and there..but for the most part I steadily stitched my way through them. I think I'm actually going to miss working on them, but now there is the challenge of a border and quilting.


I've pretty much decided to try to hand quilt this piece in sections, adding the border after that is done in a "quilt as you go" fashion. We'll see.............
I also have the Dear Jane to finish...............and a couple of other applique UFO's..........and ..............

Don't think I'll be without something to work on.
I'll finish sewing these last blocks into rows and post some pics of the sections later.

Congratulations!. I know it'll be a lovely quilt. Can't wait to see it done. As Geta says it does take a lot of patience - and to think you're doing the Dear Jane also.
