A long time ago, a time when I wasn't thinking and my sister was with me, she talked me into this. it was bought, thrown in a box and but not forgotten. I will NOT ever buy something with this many pieces EVER again. It is all sewed and ready to go to the quilter. Unfortunately, it now has to travel to IL to a quilter that does free hand but that is a good thing because I am tired of looking at it. Perhaps absence will make me love it again.
