    An 80 year old woman that belongs to my church brought me a bag of grandmother's flower basket blocks that she found in some boxes of her mother's things. She wanted me to quilt them. They were diffeent sizes and colors and fabrics but I managed t put this together. What do you think? She hasn't seen it yet so I wanted to get your opinions on whether she will be happy with it or if I hide it. What do you think?

    What a treasure to find! I think she will be extremely pleased and having brought it to you she already knew you were excellent at quilting. I wish I could do some quilting that pretty. Lovely job.

    Thanks for all the kind words. I will take it too her tomorrow. I hope you are right. All the church ladies saw the blocks and someone had told her that the pieces wouldn't go together. She told them she knew I could do it. What confidence. I sure didn't want to disappoint her and truth be known I wanted to show the sceptics that IT COULD BE DONE.

    I think she would have loved it no matter what you did because it was a treasure that she found. so with saying that she is going to cry tears of joy when she sees what you have done!! and all those other ladies will have to eat their words when she shows off this beauty!! great job and a big pat on the back!!
