My Insanity quilt

Hello again! I was at a quilting retreat last week and worked for three straight days on this miniature paper pieced quilt.
I started this quilt several years ago at a class I took at the Mid-Atlantic quilt festival. The class was taught by George and Virgina Siciliano. The actual name of the quilt is "Glow in the Dark". There are 24 blocks, each with 36 pieces in them, making a grand total of 1008 pieces. The kicker is that this quilt is only 18" square! That's why I named it "Insanity." I thought I would go crazy piecing all those tiny little pieces, but I was determined, and I finished it right at the end of the retreat. It really feels good to finished a UFO (Unfinished Object)!  It's going to be hung in my craft area, where I can be inspired each day, and know that ANYTHING is possible! haha
