    Quilts are pretty. Your BD quilt.WOW!!!! You are a special daughter to get the only big quilt like that from your mother, lucky you.
    Do you keep it on your bed? If you don't ,how do you store it? I hear there are all kinds of ways to store???

    I love to look at all the quilts and could never, never get enough.

    Curious George was my son's favorite book character and that one is my favorite. Hum......maybe that's one my little grandson needs. I would enjoy working on that fabric!

    Your quilts are beautiful!

    My Mom made the wedding ring quilt 25 years ago, and even though I was a garment maker and home dec sewer I really don't think I appreciated the work that went into that quilt. Her original objective was to make one for me, my SIL and her 6 granddaughters. She only worked on it during the winters and it took her 3 years. Needless to say, she never got in the mood to make another one. Lucky me to be the only daughter.

    I used it on my bed for many years, now I display it different ways, on a bed, hanging or on a quilt rack. I change my quilts quite frequently. Try not to expose to direct sunlight. I have had to repair some of the hand quilting stitches, but not much. Also, I didn't realize you shouldn't wash quilts very much, so this one has been washed several times! I hope my girls don't fight over it when I am gone. Told older one since it is a queen size maybe they could have someone split it and make two twins. What do you think?

    Even split it wouldn't make two twins would it? A king size bed is the same size as two twins but even if you cut a king in two, it wouldn't be the right size for two twins because of what hangs down on both sides. It might make two throw size quilts and a couple pillows, but oh, what a shame to cut that beautiful big quilt. I would will it to the oldest and make something special for the youngest.

    Beautifal quilts. No I don't get bored seeing quilt pictures. Keep posting them. The Backyard Friends you say is your pattern.
    Do you share? I have birdy fabrics I would love to make something like that with. You are very creative. Thanks for sharing. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Keep posting Polly, your quilts are really neat. I have a friend who would go nuts over the backyard friends.

    The Backyard Friends isn't really a pattern. I just decided what size I wanted the quilt. Approx. 5'W x 6'L, and started cutting rectangles. Some of the rows are about 8" H and some are 4". I added solid pieces in between the bird fabrics to make the rows come out even. Then Added 3" sashing. I think anyone could make one of these. I used large pieces (fat quarter size) of bird and plain fabric on the back. I am going to make one using toile rectangles sometime soon.
