work in progress

I'm so glad I went to the Home Machine Quilting Show..it was just what I needed to finish this quilt...
I started it almost 2 years ago! I love the detail in it, this picture doesn't do it justice. My Grandma purchased it for me at  My very first Quilt Show in Layton, Utah.  So I was working on some more blocks tonight and it just makes me laugh looking back. I had no business even attempting this quilt. I didn't have any experience quilting and I dive into this very advanced paper piecing quilt.
Look at those tiny half square triangles! I have so much more experience quilting now and I still look at that and don't think I could do it again.
Click here for a close up of some of the blocks.
I just need to finish some more filler blocks and I think I will be done by this weekend. The only hard part is trying to decide how I should quilt it. I will do it myself of course on the Long Arm, I just don't know if I should stip all over, maybe some echo quilting around the buildings...not sure, Anywho, thanks for looking!
