I saw this pattern in a magazine several years ago and loved it. I also liked the idea of hand piecing a quilt. I've hand quilted quilts, but never hand pieced one. I enjoyed working on it, but really glad it's finished. It turned out quite a bit bigger than I planned - closer to king size than queen, which means it will be hard to wash. I'm almost afraid to use it. It would be nice to use on a quest bed, more as a display piece.
