    I've told several people about working on this EB quilt, having started it last summer and getting close to finishing it this. At this rate, I'm hoping to have the thing done by maybe ....... the first of never :lol:

    Actually, my mother has laid claim to it, so I have to get it done soon. She's been dropping her subtle hints lately (i.e., when you finish my quilt, I'm going to put it right on my bed). Of course, she claimed it by saying, "you remember that flower quilt you were working on? Well, you can give that to me for my birthday. That's my mom. What can I say?

    So anyhoooo, here are the pictures. I only have 13 of of 20 done (I'm redoing the crocus, since I didn't like how they turned out)

    I think these are lovely. You will have to post the rest of them before your Mom makes off with the whole thing. :D

    It's certainly going to be an original. I think I'm going to burn the book after I'm done :roll:

    wow I love these, are you creating the flower patterns yourself as you go? No wonder your mom is hinting I'd hint over something that beautiful too! I can already see it put together and on a bed, SO BEAUTIFUL! :D

    Quite a lot of the material I hand-dyed. :lol:

    I was thinking on doing a 1/2" cross hatch on the basket squares and a feathered wreath on the solid squares. Maybe I'm just being too ambitious on this sucker since it's a queenie but we'll see.
