You can get the pattern at Two Bits Patches.
The video clip of the Chester Criswell Quilt blocks is currently playing on YouTube. The music is from my own band, The Sale City Band (est. 1871). I'm playing the timpani.

Last night I basted the final two blocks. Once they are quilted and sewn together, then the last row can be attached and the quilt bound. I find it hard to believe that I'm nearly finished. I don't think I will hand quilt such a big quilt again, it just takes too long.
So, what comes next? I have some ideas. Like every keen quilter, the next quilt project can hardly wait until the current one is finished. I better hurry up with those last two blocks.
