    Ideas please!

    My 40 year old DD is going to run her 1st marathon in a few months! Please help me think of a quilt design to celebrate this big step in her life. Thx
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    What does she like? Modern, traditional? favorite colors? Do you want it related to marathon running or will a different pattern do?

    I would include 26 blocks (one for each mile). I would do 25 blocks on front and one on back. What state is she running in? Maybe do a block that has the name of that state in its name.

    What about a T-shirt quilt, if she has T-shirts from other "sporty" events.

    You could do Warm Wishes with a running shoe fabric as the focal fabric.
