    The dark blue fabric with the white flowerdesign once belonged to my Mom. She gave it to me shortly before she passed.

    Anael this has turned out so beautiful--your color selection is superb and so well balanced. My first thought was a white border with applique leaves and flowers. I have a feeling this is not going to happen since you just "love" to applique--not.

    So many colors......so beautifully combined. I know you will come up with a perfect border. Almost anything you decide upon, will work. Mom must be grinning from ear to ear.....

    OK. you know me so well

    OK and Wendy, thanks for the compliments. It's a weird feeling to be finished. I've been looking at the quilt all day and I think my Mom would have been pleased with the result.

    This is so pretty. I love that purple fabric in the Martha Washington block.

    Since you've used so many flower prints and flowery designs, I'd go for a couple greens to tie everything together. An inner one with possibly a teeny tiny yellow print and a more olive or grass green for the outer border

    Thanks GrannieAnnie for the suggestions. I thought the first border to be white, a small one to make the quilt float, and green is a good choice as outer border(s). Maybe a lighter green first and a darker one as outer border?

    Go ahead with the first white. It wil unify all your blocks--------------then green!

    I hope the quilt helps you feel close with your mom. I miss mine so, after nearly forty years. Best to you.

    I started hand quilting Ode to my Mom. I never hand quilted before so it's a learning curve.

    A perfect quilt to HQ, Anael. Often times when doing projects for someone I think of that person...many happy hours of remembering your Mom.

    Oh my gosh, that is gorgeous. Your hand quilting is the perfect touch and you're doing a wonderful job. Thank you for re-posting. I often wonder what happens "afterwards" as sometimes we never hear!

    Anael your quilt is stunning and your hand quilting exquisite, I am sure as you sit and stitch there will be a lot of memories come flooding back to you, each one will be lovingly stitched into this quilt in memory of you mother.

    Beautiful job - truly a labor of love to be cherished by generations! Don't forget to put a really complete label on it explaining everything for everyone who looks at the quilt in the future. I was saddened when finding a number of beautiful hand quilted quilts in my grandmother's home after my uncle's death with no idea who made them, where they lived and what the occasion was for the quilt.

    My Oh My, Anael ... splendid work! Some beautiful intricate stitching .... and some unique designs to the quilting. It is going to be a real treasure when done ... and I'm sure a real trip down memory lane as you work your way thru the quilting! ENJOY the process ....... and before long, you will have it finished!
