    Thanks so much everyone - if she likes it as much as you all I shall be thrilled.
    I've known the lady 20 years, she is amazing so much energy and "go" and a good friend - you would think when you meet her she is early 60s-ish. Very with it & fun loving and throwing a party for the birthday, which everyone is looking forward to, it will be lively for sure.

    Red Garnet - yes she does love fine china, and has tea at the Ritz on UK visits!

    That is beautiful. What a great idea to use 1930s fabric.

    that is just beautiful Kathy!!! I love it! I would never be brave enough to use white as a border. But it brings out all those colors in the middle! Love the pinwheels!

    Beautiful job. It has great movement, especially the pinwheels made with the red fabric with circles. It is just lovely.

    She will love the table runner. The fabrics are perfect. 30's fabrics looks so bright and cheerful.

    Thanks everybody. The funny thing is I've had these 30s prints (a pack of 9"x11" pieces) for about 5 years and not found a use for them before. Just shows that eventually you do get around to the stash!

    What a nice thing to do!!! The quilt is so clean and fresh looking, I'm sure she will be proud to show it off "at tea time"!
