    I finished this some time ago, but she just got it and is in love with it. Thought I'd share with you. I designed the block using EQ5 and picked out all new fabrics. Nothing from the stash. Even the backing fabric was purchased new. She doesn't like flowers and lacy things, so I kept it to the plainer fabrics with the green pop and the black and gold as a second pop. I loved making this quilt and hope you enjoy it as well. Sorry I don't have a photo of the quilting - that was my daughter's (her mother) department. I'm hoping that Lilli will send me some photos of it on her bed with the quilting.

    Nice quilt Grandma!!! .. and for a non-lacy-non-flowery girl, you've more than met the challenge, creating a simply elegant quilt that'll be a treasure for her.

    This a lovely moasic looking quilt top. It is a challenge to quilt for those who like sutle. My son challenged me to make a quilt top for him for HS grad. that was abstract in nature. I managed it but it was hard. Nowadays there are many choice in abstract prints.:) (meaning non floral)

    That's really nice. No wonder she fell in love with it. Good color combo.

    Thanks everyone. It was made with a lot of love. I made her a quilt for her graduation, but she didn't like it. It was blue with flowers. It was a sampler quilt that I was designing and selling on Ebay at the time. These were my work blocks. Spent a lot of time on that one. Suzi, her mother, has it now.

    What a very beautiful and special gift for your grand-daughter. I'm sure it will be treasured and passed along to your great-grands.
