I am not getting the comments in my email. I wonder if blogger is having a problem. I am sorry if I am not responding to comments. I think I may have fixed it.
I started sand castles early last year and have tried to stick to it until it is finished. It was a massive project to cut and sew 3648 pieces and a bunch of strings together, and, more importantly, to keep me on the same project.
It finishes at 80 x 80 and used 20 1/4 yards of fabric.
Funny story: Cleaning up around my treadle in the living room, and I found this bunch of green sets for the sand castle quilt. It couldn't be, then, I looked at the quilt and sure enough there is only one green in the whole quilt. sigh.... I wondered why I had to cut more sets at the end. Is there anybody working on this that could use a few green sets? I can send them to you.

good lord that is a lot of fabric how did you go about measuring that to get that amount? It is a lovely quilt.ReplyDelete
I love your quilt! All the colors pop into the neutral background, beautiful!ReplyDelete
Maggie, that is just beautiful! Pretty funny about those green pieces, though. I didn't even notice there wasn't much green in Sandcastles until you mentioned it.ReplyDelete
I'll take those green extras if you are willing to send them to Canada?ReplyDelete
Ooo,that is a beauty AND you finished it!! YAY! Too many little parts for me.ReplyDelete
Hi Maggie! WOWEE - 3648 pieces. Holy moly, that is a LOT of pieces and true dedication to get this complete. Perfect quilting design to give this some movement, and that snow actually looks like sand unless you know better. I can't believe you just found that pile of green fabrics!! Too funny. Thank you so much for linking up with TGIFF today. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Why not just make them into a St Patricks Day wall hanging? Love the finish!!ReplyDelete
Fabulous finish (and a funny story, too!!)ReplyDelete
Wow - that is a marvelous quilt. So many pieces!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on this gorgeous finish! Since the green block is in the middle it makes it even more special. I love it. I might do this quilt one day but not soon enough to accept your generous offer. Good luck with that. ;^)ReplyDelete
Amazing finish! So many pieces! You gotta feel good about getting this one off your plate?!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful finish!!! Why not make a pillow with your leftovers - it would be cool next to the quilt!ReplyDelete
Lovely. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!ReplyDelete
Beautiful finish. I just picked up that book last week. I am trying to decide what quilt to make. Thanks for sharing your lovely finish with Oh Scrap!ReplyDelete
That’s a lot of fabric used up on one quilt! I really like it. Congrats for sticking with it.ReplyDelete
That is a funny story. I know I've lost fabric/blocks/directions to projects in the works. Way to make more blocks to get this one done. It's a beauty!ReplyDelete
