I finished my Legos top! I'm thrilled to have it done, and I love how it turned out. I call it "Plays Well With Others" for these reasons: we were calling the strips Legos, and with this many Legos, players and blocks would have to cooperate, which they did, to a beautiful end. Also, Plays Well With Others is a sort of a theme at my new job. The theory is, if one plays well with others, she/he will do well at this job. Since I seem to be doing well, I guess I play well with others.
some close-up looks at the "Legos"
It took a bunch of hours to make this top, miles of thread, umpteen bobbins, and of course all the cutting and the strips. I figure there are about 1450 pieces in this quilt -- 48 blocks at about 30 pieces each (average), plus the solid bits that I had to piece, so there are about 12 of those. I round it to 1450. It would be fun to know the exact number of pieces in this quilt, but I am NOT going to count them.
