    My Brother and his bithday quilt.

    I finally got this quilt finished and ready to give to my big brother for his birthday in august. But, when he heard it was finished, he just had to take it home with him today after a long day of BBQ and family visiting. LOL... Even my new 10 year old friend sierra came to visit and eat with us. But, that is another story altogether.

    He was kinda busy on the phone, but here he is with his beloved quilt. It is a dp4 and a log cabin variation 2 block quilt I made up. No pattern, sorry everyone.

    I hope you like it too.

    I loved making this quilt. Here is the original pics shown some time ago on the board.

    I love your quilt! What a great design and color. When i first scrolled down for the picture, I thoughtnit was a picture of my cousin, Bruce! I had to look really close to see that it wasn't!

    Well, I guess I'm fourth in line for your brother! But I'm probably old enough to be his mother. The quilt is gorgeous.

    Thank you all so very much! I really appreciate your positive response to this quilt.

    These are all fabrics from my stash that just happen to all go together in perfect scale. I think that is what is appealing about it, if you ask me. The coral centers are a michael miller fairy frost. Once you cut the disappearing four patch, the centers of that cut becomes the center of the court house steps center (the other block). I used a solid coral square for the center of the d4p. That is all girls.

    I don't have the link to the D4P, but if you google it, quite possibly the tutorial will be available still. I am pretty sure that I posted the link in the original posting of the top. It is called black white and coral quilt. Or something very like that.
