    I recently made this quilt as a gift for my Mom. It is machine appliqued and was professionally quilted.

    Thank you for all of the nice comments. It was my first quilt. I've always stuck to small projects, tablerunners, wallhangings etc. so this quilt was a challenge for me.

    I really enjoyed making it though and might try another quilt in the future. My husband thinks I should make one for our king-size bed...YIKES!

    You are right...the quilter did an unbelievable job on this quilt. She really put her heart into it to make it so special for my Mom. I didn't feel that she charged me enough so I sent her a $100 Visa card along with a heartfelt thank you note. Like I told her, "I gave to you a pretty quilt top, and you returned to me a stunning quilt"

    That's a beautiful, cheerful, happy quilt. Since it's been dismal, rainy and cold here all day - I'd like to hang a picture of that quilt on the wall to remind me that spring will come again someday!

    Thank you for all of your kind words. My mom really loved it when she saw it yesterday, and it looks great on her bed.

    This quilt is a Smith Street Design and is machine appliqued. Actually you could make it without an embroidery machine as the templates for all of the appliques are included in the pattern. It is called Roses in Bloom.
    All of you are so generous with your compliments...what a wonderful group of quilters!
