I finally finished this top which is going to be my mother's Christmas present. It is made out of my Birthday blocks from 2012 and about 25 more that I made. It is ready to be sent off to the longarmer!
Jackie, it's lovely - so feminine. Your mother will be delighted. Beautiful work!
Jackie, what a great use of the birthday blocks! I love the applique around the corners; it sets off the blocks perfectly. It's a beautiful gift and I'm sure it will mean a lot to her!
Jackie, It's beautiful...I'm sure your Mom will treasure this lovely gift!!!
Wow, it's wonderful! Your mom will love it. What is the name of the block?
Thanks everyone. The block is 1930's square. All the colored fabrics are 1930's reproductions.
That turned out great. The blocks alone didn't look like much but put together with lots of others really makes it special. I'm sure she'll be so surprised.
Beautiful. So many pretty fabrics and such an interesting design. It reminds me a little of the granny square crocheted afghans I loved as a child. Can't wait to see what it looks like all quilted.
Love it, especially the applique, looks like an antique.
Really lovely! You did a great job in putting this together and I know your mom will be thrilled to receive it.
Beautiful! I love the vines, they add such a special touch. Your Mom will love the gift.
Beautiful!! I also love your appliqued flower border. Nice :-)
What a wonderful quilt. Yes, also love the applique border. Never seen it used like that and is such a clever idea.
You did a wonderful job of mixing the colors and appliquing the border. A lovily gift and good use of your BD blocks. Your mother will be thrilled with your efforts.TFS
It's a lovely quilt! What a wonderful Christmas present it will be.
Best to you,
Jackie, What a special and beautiful gift for your mother. She will cherish it.
The applique border is beautiful and really softens the geometric shape. She will love it.
Ditto to all the above. I love, love, love the appliqued border. Can't wait to see it quilted. It's a real treasure.
Very nice job Jackie. Thanks for sharing.
