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!

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.
