Finished on the 23rd of December (except for the label) "Sunset Over the Lake" was given to my son on Christmas eve. Despite the fact that I asked him what colors he would like a quilt to be, he did not expect it.
**The finished quilt measures 85 x 85 inches
**It contains 1872 triangles (I think I've counted correctly this time)
**It also contains roughly 90 different fabrics, including fabric from two of my son's old Hawaiian shirts (which he was able to pick out easily!)
**The 9 blocks were assembled by quarters, each quarter assembled with standard piecing and some paper-pieced.
**The quilt was professionally and beautifully machine-quilted in a moderately-sized meandering pattern by Cheryl Dennis of Finally Quilted in Westford, MA.
