    This quilt was made for Mum's 60th Birthday (17th Oct) and finished it last Wednesday. I will be giving it to her on the 18th October when she flies in from Hong Kong. I got the pattern from the Quilters Cache and is called cross apon cross, The block size is 15 inch.

    A happy birthday to your mum! Very, very cool colors, is that batik or patterned on the black? Also, what pattern did you end up quilting it with? I can't see it. So far the only thing I can think to do with such pretty blocks is to back tack them or possibly in the ditch if I could ever muster it.

    I quilted in the ditch across the crosses and around each block and arround the border I used a 2" Wave stencil. Glad you liked it.

    Fab quilt Sharon, :thumbup: I love the way you've reversed the colours in alternate blocks, gives it a posative/negative effect, stunning

    That is really beautiful Sharon! Please post a photo of your Mum with the quilt! She's sure to love it, and if she's like a lot of Mums, she'd be willing to pose so she can show it off properly.

    I love the pink and black together. And the reversal of the placement in the blocks (negative and positive space?) Very cool.

    You've been busy! No wonder we haven't heard much from you lately!

    Welcome back! Your mom will be so pleased and proud. And the wall hanging for your daughter is adorable also.
