    gave 94 year old aunt this quilt

    A little back story.
    This was the only living aunt left.
    Their daughter was killed in tragic accident years ago.Had 3very young boys.
    Aunt and Hubby with the help of a sis raised the boys.
    They had a pool put in so we were taking grboys in the summer.
    She had told my Husband she wanted a quilt with flowers .Luckily I had one done!
    She was so thrilled! Should have got a picture.

    What a beautiful colorful quilt. No wonder she was thrilled. It is gorgeous. Sounds like she is a well deserving recipient too. Bless them for having taken in the boys.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That's so sweet! There are so many beautiful flowers on the quilt for your aunt to enjoy. I'm sure she was really touched by your thoughtfulness.

    I am trying to decide what pattern it is. One way I look at it I can see parts of a D9P, but other ways I think I see Yellow Brick Road. Would you mind sharing what pattern you used to glorify these lovely floral prints?

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
