A Finish: No Longer a WIGSP

Now known as "How Many"

How many:
33 Piecers stitched components
345 different batik and hand dyed fabrics in the top
126 hexies with 18 pieces each
756 pieced triangles
2268 little kite shaped pieces
420 black triangles and 56 black half-triangles including borders
2744 total pieces in the top
About 96 x 98"
12 years to piece the top over 8 go-rounds of Piecing Group, all hand pieced (running stitch, not EPP)
Many, many thanks to the wonderful girls in Piecing Group, now and former members over the years, who helped piece this project.
