Plays Well With Others

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.

"PWWO" is a great quilt. I really like the thin dark border! I am in the process of finishing mine and I think I will borrow that design element for mine :c)

WOW! Double WOW! I like what you did to finish it too. Love that you added the stats, too. That's a lot of cutting and sewing and fabric cooperation. Well done.

A-MAZING amazing amazing!
Little did you know that I needed to hear about "playing well with others." I hope 2012's motto at my job is just that.....

Maybe I need to whip one of these out to remind me (and others) of that motto.

LOVE IT!
