Now it's done, washed and dried and I have a huge sense of accomplishment. I started this one April 1, spent 5 1/2 months doing the hand reverse applique (196 blocks) and setting the blocks together. I started hand quilting it Sept 19, so it took a few days shy of 3 months to quilt. Considering I finished DT#1 Feb 1, I am really proud that I can say I completed two of these in 2010 (even though I started #1 in 2008).
I think I may take a break before starting #3..if I make one, that is. I have several other big projects that need finished..like quilting my Dear Jane for instance.
It's hard to get good pictures inside and without help holding it up. Perhaps I can get better ones later. So without further ado..here is Dutch Gold.
Before washing, the quilting perhaps shows a bit better in this picture
