    And she loved it!!! Made me tear up, as she did really love it!!! She wanted to know how I had gotten all her colors, the pattern, so I showed her the picture I had taken of her pillow! lol!!!! And Jill, my DDIL who also helped me try to figure it out, told me to tell her all I went through trying to make it for her. lol!!!
    Thank you all, again!! It was a hit!! :D :D

    Glad she liked it. The color combination is beautiful. That is one pretty quilt. I like the FM quilting.

    Ah Diana

    I'm so pleased Jessie loved her quilt - then again who wouldn't. You can see she LOVES it just by her smile. Smiles tell us alot huh.
    Pat yourself on the back you did a wonderful job.

    That came out great. It's hard to figure out another person's colors and style and go with it, but it shows that you really made the gift for her.

    Diana, I am just soooo glad it came out so
    well and that Jessie liked it. I live in fear of spending
    so much time on projects for family that they only
    "kind of" like. Like someone else said, it all shows
    in her smile!

    Personally, I think it is just beautiful and may duplicate
    the same block for my DD. I've already bought the fabric
    but have been told it needs to "look" contemporary.

    Thank you, all of you, for your very wonderful thoughts!!!! I really appreciate it!! :D

    Joan, I'd make the blocks a bit bigger if I were to do it again. Mine were 6 3/4", and it seemed to take forever to make enough of them. But they weren't fun for me to make, as I really prefer the more traditional blocks.

    But yeah, her face, and that she really loved it, made it all very much worthwhile!!! :D
