    This is my 3rd project, a quilt my daughter picked out and asked me to make for her. I probably should have gone with something a little easier, but so far.....so good. Tonight we put hrt up onto the design wall so we could decide on color combinations/placement and have had a ball changing things around (often to put right back where they were). I basically have to repeat every color again and will probably just repeat the sequence we have up now. Then, depending on the size, I may have to add more rows/columns to give her the size quilt she wants. (a queen size)

    Oh, I like this one. Looks like you are doing a great job to me. Hard to believe it is only your 3rd project. What is the name of the pattern please?

    That's gorgeous! I would never have attempted that as a 3rd project - I am very impressed! I would love to know the name of the pattern.

    Ditto, I am intrigued too - I haven't ever seen a pattern like this. It's really unusual, and I love your choice of colours.

    This is a beautiful vibrant quilt. I too am curious about the pattern name....not that I'd want to try it...wouldn't have the patience. Keep us updated on your progress.

    Wow that's going to be one AWESOME quilt! The best part of it is that BOTH of you are having fun playing with it. Maybe someone will be bitten by the quilting bug! Good for you.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. The name of the quilt is a AMish Wedding Ring. I found the pattern in a book "Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns." It was a quilt designed by a woman named Linda Carlson. We've already named this quilt "1st Comes Love". My daughter keeps asking "how long is this going to take, will it be done by my birthday Thursday?" And I was busy complaining about how long all the little triangle units were taking me to piece together and if she had chosen something else, maybe her quilt would be finished sooner. LOL. That's when she informed me the quilt would be cherished forever and my "grandchildren would be conceived under this quilt". :) So we had a little chat about 1st comes love, then comes marriage and so on, haha. Actually I'm having a ball putting this together with her watching every step of the way. I don't think the quilting bug has hit but we've had some pretty special moments together recently. I'll keep posting pictures as "1st Comes Love" comes together!
