    This quilt is made from Jackie Robinson's split stripe pattern. I also used her fabrics. It is all FMQ in a vine pattern. I made it for my son's girlfriends birthday, because I really like her and was hoping that they would someday get married. They broke up 2 days after he gave it to her!!! Such is life, I had fun making it anyway.

    don't know what to say-your quilt is beautiful, love the colors and ladybugs-i hope she appreciates all of your hard work, and takes care of the quilt even though they broke up. You never know, they may come to an understanding, and get back together again

    What a pretty quilt. The ladybugs are a great idea. I have a sister who likes ladybugs. I might put some on her French Braid.

    Your colors I love: Tourmaline pink and green.
    He may forget her but she will never forget you, that's for sure, unless she is a dolt or something!
    How generous of you!

    Oh wow that's beautiful. Sorry the broke up.....but I have a feeling you have made it impossible for her to ever forget you with that quilt.

    She really does treasure things, so I believe she will take care of it. Mabe she will go back to him just because she could have a great mother-in-law like me ?? LOL I had wanted to make that quilt since i first saw the pattern in a magazine.

    Simply precious! Your choice of fabrics with the pattern are perfect!

    I can relate to your situation. I have two boys and no DIL yet! A few I would have liked to keep and a couple I wasn't sure about! Just keeps us waiting in anticipation doesn't it!? But I know I will love the chosen one! :lol:

    Beautiful quilt and colors. My DD was dating a guy and he loved the KC Chiefs. I special ordered the fabric from the NFL site and guess what. They broke up within the week. Luckily I didn't even cut into the fabric. Guess I will put it up for sale or hang on to it for awhile or try and find her a KC fan. LOL
