Split Nine Patch Finished!

I love this finish!  Every time I hang it up for pics, I just stare at it.  It's absolutely beautiful!!

Nelson says, "Hi!"
There are so many pieces involved.  One-hundred eighty-two blocks.  Twelve pieces per block.   For a grand total of 2,184 pieces.  I started piecing it as my leader/ender project in July, 2013.  I believe it's final measurements are 102" x 108".  I seem to see it with a lightweight denim backing because it screams, "old-fashioned" quilt to me, which of course means it needs to go on picnics at the park.  I see a lot of sunny, fun family days in it's future!
