    Here's some pics of the quilt I finished today for my mother-in-law. I love her to bits, and she's been more like a mother to me and has loved me as her own. This will be a Christmas surprise for her, so it'll be a while before she gets it.

    I made it with a Moda layer cake in the "Harvest Home" collection by Blackbird Designs. The pattern is called "Hidden Stars" from the "Layer Cake, Jelly Roll, and Charm Quilts" book by Pam & Nicky Lintott. I really like the look of the crisp white stars against the background fabric - I think I may have to make me one for myself some day in this same pattern. The finished size is 60" x 72".

    Nice quilt! I, too, like that crisp star look. The colors are warm. I like your label too... I've never put one on mine.

    Shame on you not labelling. If you had the choice of two antique quilts you could buy, both pretty, both the same age, both the same price, would you buy the one with the label, or the one without? What you put on a label is the ONLY information anyone in the future will know for certain about your quilts. Please reconsider.

    Your mom-in-law is going to be thrilled! I think you're a natural quilter, Eddie!
