Finally done - I started this in November 2015, and it kept growing. I said I wanted to use purple and orange, knowing the combination was unusual, but I knew it would work. There are slightly less that 3700 pieces, but it was not difficult construction, as the entire process was streamlined. And because the pieces are small, I could blend many scraps. "Bank One" was embroidered on a lovely blue shirt given to me - see all the beautiful glowing blue color? -- that shirt fabric was too good to discard.
My husband looked and looked at the finished quilt and then HORROR came over his face when he realized there are some "odd" layouts to this quilt. He said I messed up!!! I laughed because that is exactly what I had planned. At first it looks like an ordinary layout, but I wanted to "trick" the viewer exactly the way I tricked DH!
Thanks Jackie Robinson for her DVD and engineering plan!
