    Here's the 50th birthday quilt for dil's mom. Seems like I've been working on it forever. It has over 1000 pieces in it. Thank goodness for strip piecing! I was wondering...before I send it to her, should I have quilted in the blue border?

    It's one I saw on Fons and Porter. The block didn't have a specific name, but the show was coordinating light, medium, and dark fabrics. I liked it because it looked like a lattice and my two main fabrics were florals. There are ten different strip pieces for the ten different rows in the block. Each piece is 2 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches, except 5 of the rows begin and end with a half-piece to get the diagonals going.
