An extraordinary quilt

This has to rate as the toughest and of course the loveliest of the quilts I have tried to make. Right now I have done only the blocks and have to make it into a quilt top and then of course quilt it. But happy right now to have got to this stage. Especially as I know no one else has done as much. Many have lagged behind or given up or never tried. So I do have reason to feel on top of the world.  And of course not to forget that at last I would have a quilt for myself.
I set this as my target for ALYOF and managed to finish it all but for the last block. I am out of the background material and will be getting it in the next couple of days. Will finish it definitely before the month ends.

Madhu's blocks and my quilt!

I did have a lot of finished projects the last four months and all of them lovely but somehow kept missing linking it to A Year of lovely finishes. Thankfully remembered it this month. July is going to be my 'me month'. I am going to work on my quilt. I plan to finish setting all my MMDQ blocks into squares and also finish the ones I am yet to do. Making a quilt top now that would be wonderful but am not setting that as a target. Here are some of the blocks. Paper pieced, designed by fellow quilter Madhu Mathur - you can find the free patterns here -
