    I started this quilt many years ago.
    The fabric is a Moda called Floral Trails. It is a reproduction for the 1800's. Now I need to find a quilter to help me finish it :D :D :D

    Thanks ladies for the comps!!! I new I had to finish it now to get it quilted sigh :wink: :wink:

    I think it turned out pretty good since I originally cut it out several yearts ago and did not give myself any hint as to using. :? :? :shock: :shock: I finished the 16 patches and windmills but had no setting for it. Rummaged through my books and found this setting. See that is why you need a bunch of books so you have something to look in. Who said we bought them to make all the quilts in them :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Of course now I have a bunch of scraps left now what to do with them :? :? :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Tisha, please tell your son "thanks" -- I think he's beautiful too! (And he isn't spoiled a bit :roll: )!
