the Oh My Gosh quilt















Here is another quilt from our quilt exchange. For obvious reasons, this quilt is called "Oh My Gosh". The version my friend made has over 4,000 pieces, and if you make it as large as the pattern, it has over 6,000. I think we can safely add this one to the list of quilts I will NEVER make. I do love the scrappiness of it, but I find that it is a quilt that needs to be appreciated up close.

Other happenings: oral surgery for my son this past Friday (he'll be fine), completing the binding on another gift quilt (basic but made with pretty Christmas fabric), a fun family Christmas gift exchange party on Saturday, a visit from my SIL Diane who is back from Australia (yeah) on Sunday. Now I'm finishing up various things at work before having vacation next week. Hope you all are surviving the holiday madness...

Beautiful quilt, but how small are those squares? They look like 1" finished.
