Doesn't look like much but...

Progress is very slow on this one, but it is progressing. This is where I got to before lunch. I would guess another days work would get me to the half way point, so the bigger version will probably take over a month of solid work. I think it might be time to buy zippers for my leaders. I can't take a whole month off customer quilts and to be honest it's sufficiently hard work that I don't really want to work on it for that long without a break.

When you look at a large size picture you can see why it is taking so long. It's very detailed.

Stunning! And like Penny says, you can see why it will take so long! Get those zippers ordered and on :o)

Glad it's come across. It's hard to get any perspective on this one, worse than the art quilts even. Yup I will get the zippers ordered.

Don't get discouraged. It's very intricate and I envy your skill. Soon you will stand back and say "Wow - did I do that?" There's always that mid-point where fatigue sets in. you'll get past it! -Chris

This is absolutely stunning! I can't imagine doing all this intricate work. Wish I had a machine and the patience for it because I just love it. Hang in there.

I really LOVE this piece. The detail is amazing. You are really doing some amazing design and quilting work. It will take for ever, but don't give up. Can't wait until it is finished!

That is stunning work - I agree though, those little pebbles are very time consuming and back breaking after a while. It will be worth it though!
