quilt made for my sister's b/d

nana24June 21, 2008

I made this quilt for my sister for her b/d this month. I started with a reproduction 30's kit for the flowers then bought more fabric for the other blocks.

When the blocks were made I birthed it with a piece of fleece and quilted in the ditch on the machine. I used a decorative stitch around the edge.

Oh Sally,
I just want to curl up with it and pretend that my mom or grandma are taking care of me because I am home sick from school. Nearly makes me want to cry. Oh course, I am hoping that cookies would be baking in the oven and that I would complain that my throat was sore and I would get a malt. What size is it. Just love it. Deanna

Sally, I really like your quilt.....it has a very comforting feel to it. Love the butterfly block, too.
If your sister doesn't love it, you can send it to me! @:)

Thank you all for your kind words.
My DS did like her quilt. I think she was surprised. She couldn't decide which block she liked best. I know she will treasure it.
