    Blue and White Quilt

    I made this for my neighbor, She had a quilt from her grandmother that she loved so much but was damaged beyound repair and very sad she had to throw out. So I made this for her. She cried when I gave it to her as a surprise gift.

    What a thoughtful neighbor your are! The quilt is lovely and I'm sure your neighbor will treasure it just as she did her grandmother's quilt.

    That is beautiful! Those are some of my favorite colors in a quilt. Love the pattern too. What is the name of the pattern? Great story about your lovely neighbor. You are a good friend to have done such a thoughtful thing. God bless you.

    I love, love this!! Love the pattern and who wouldn't love blue and white. My niece is making a quilt in this pattern but it's totally scrappy.

    I would have cried too. It's a beautiful quilt and you have a generous spirit.

    Thank you everyone, my neighbor is a blessing too, Over the years she has helped me with car pooling my kids to school as I was working and couldn't always pick them up from school. Lisa (my neighbor) would never take gas money or any other gifts. When she told me about her grandmothers quilt I finally knew something I could make for her and she wouldn't refuse. I was right when I took the quilt over to her house, tears rolled down her face and she said "No one has ever made me something so thoughtful" I was happy to finally repay the favors she has done for me over the years.

    I also would like to know the pattern name. I bought a group of blues from people on the board and they are waiting for me to find a pattern and I think that is the one.
