    Heres one I've been working on for a couple years. The blocks are hand-appliqued and I hand quilted it too. Would have like to do some more to it, but wanted to get it done to hang up. Thought it would give me some cheer since I've been couch bound for the last few months with my broken back!! It does look pretty hanging in my living room.

    Tricia,
    Your quilt is lovely. It most certainly must make you smile to look at it.

    I have the patterns to those flowers also but you've beat me to it. I'm glad to see just how lovely they do turn out. All I need is time! :wink:

    Tricia,
    I completely missed that you had been recouperating from a broken back. I'm so sorry. I know another person who has had to go through that & it took awhile but he is much better now. It is amazing what the doctors can do these days. Hope you are feeling better. It's nice that you were still able to do a little hand work & get such a beautiful quilt done. I'm impressed!!

    It's just beautiful. I would love to do one like that. If you have to be couch bound - what a lovely way to spend your time and keep your mind off the pain. Blessings for a complete and pain free recovery.

    Thanks to everyone!! I actually did all the work before I hurt my back, I just finally got the binding on the other day. I haven't even been able to do any hand sewing with the injury I have!! Too painful. But I'm getting better-I was sewing for about 5 hours yesterday. Hurrah!!!
