    Autumn Beauty a lap quilt for DDiL

    I love the various forms of New York Beauty, so I decided to use one ofr my DDiL's Christmas present. (I try to have all Christmas quilts finished in time for my guild's August show.) My DDiL has recently been diagnosed with MS after years of testing etc. She is now in a wheel chair. I wanted this to be special for her.

    QM that is so pretty. I am sure she will love it. I am so sorry to hear she has MS . I have lupus so I have some understanding.

    A beautiful quilt and gift. My sis has ms, was also born with cp but it doesn't slow her down. She is in chair a lot, really depends on weather. Any big change in barometer seems to really affect her, like before a big storm.

    So sorry to hear of your DDiL's illness. I think this is a VERY special quilt! It's lovely! I recently saw some "lap quilts" (can't remember if it was on this board or just online) with pockets similar to sweatshirt jacket pockets and want to make some for a few elderly friends. I think they'd make fantastic gifts for those in wheelchairs.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    That is stunning! I'm sure she will just love it. My daughter was diagnosed with MS 4 years ago. So far, she is doing OK. Best wishes to your DDIL.

    Lovely quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Your daughter-in-law is going to LOVE it. I think setting those beautiful fabrics on a dark background really makes the quilt sing. Thanks for sharing.

    I, too, LOVE "NY Beauty" blocks but could NEVER make something so spectacular! This is stunning & I'm sure your DIL will love, love, love it. It's so sweet of you to make it for her. I'm so sorry to hear of her illness. I'll hold good thoughts for her (& all of y'all).
