35 hours of piecing

Just finished piecing! It took me 35 hours to put together 579 pieces of 18 colors of different fabrics. How did I calculate? It was written on the pattern, each block consists of 20-40 pieces, total - 21 block to sew together. It's hard to distinguish blocks. isn't it?
The size of it 19 1/4" x 15 1/4". Sometimes I can hear the questions: Is it a painting? Is it applique? No, this is all pieced. Here's the picture of the back, gazillion of stitches!  Does it look complicated? Nah, if you can sew straight stitch, you can do this too, believe me! Just all straight stitches on  this miniature quilt (to be!).
Now need some more time to quilt it and frame.
Thanks again to Cynthia England for design!
