    Used her favorite colors! Will be taking it to her later today....late X-mas gift. Oh well....better late than never, huh? It's also the last time I make such a big quilt (double sized bed) and free motion quilt on my Bernina. Yikes!! Too much fabric to push through such a small space. Will have to look into either sending big quilts out to get quilted or find someone who rents out their longarm. I very much like to do the whole process myself. I'll keep you posted on what's available in my area. Thanks for looking!!

    Very pretty quilt and I love those colors together. Your mom is going to be so pleased to be getting such a beauty, and I can imagine you are just as thrilled to be giving it to her.

    You did a great job, it is beautiful. Our local Bernina store rents out their machine by the hour.

    D9P really is one of my favourites, it always looks so different from different people. Yours is beautiful!

    Your Mom is going to love this one!! I love it too! What pattern is that? Your choice of fabrics is great! I am with you on sending it to someone to quilt if it is too big. First I just do not do FMQ and I don't like fighting with a bigger quilt trying to do it on my regurlar machine which happens to be a Bernina.
