    Two quilts in one!

    I finally finished my oldest daughter's b'day quilt. I took forever because I didn't like so many things about it. Started as 9Ps and Snowballs. I didn't like that so I split it and added the appliqued flowers. Still didn't like it, so I started a new one for the back. Sunny Lanes after seeing a post by justflyingin here on the QB. Back to the front and added scrappy piano keys to cut down on the red/green of the quilt. Two color binding. I think I'm glad it's finished and delivered. BTW, I worried for nothing. She loved it. The small rose print was her favorite print as a child. She laughed at my hand drawn lily - it's the second flower from the bottom if you can't guess. At least the coneflower and tulip passed.

    Size 68X70
    Pattern Snowball/Nine Patch w/appliques and a piano key border
    Back Sunny Lanes from quilterscache
    Two color binding from Charismah's tutorial

    Love the Sunny Lanes/back! But, it's pretty impressive you did two quilts in one!

    How lucky to have 2 quilts when I bet she was only expecting one! Both sides are beautiful. It's extra special because of the memories of the rose print it brings her.

    You, have truly inspired me! Your own design on the front is beautiful! The flowers were the perfect touch and I love the two color binding, I'm going to look up that tutorial next! I also love the quilt you made for the back. So bright and colorful! Thank you for starting my day so beautifully!!!
