    My Daughter calls it the OLD LADY QUILT

    A client gave me this quilt to longarm quilt, sorry I couldn't get picture of whole quilt, as my holder upper was gone. I do not know the name of the pattern, but when my 15 year old daughter saw it she said that looks like something an old lady would make, all I could do was laugh at her, she just says what she thinks. I went out of my comfort zone in the borders on this quilt, but from much inspiration from this board I am starting to do that a lot more. Thanks for looking.

    Beautiful!!! I remember when I was a teen I did not care for the old fashions either, as we age we seem to gravitate to them.

    I'm an oldie (but a goodie... LOL!) & I love, love, love this quilt! I also love that your daughter speaks her mind (take it from one who does the same...)! Oh, I remember having a 15-year-old & I feel your pain... LOL! Thanks for sharing the quilt & the story with us!

    I do not admit to being old yet, but I do love this quilt. The quilting is great. I haven't commented a lot on this sight but I read a lot and you are right about the encouragment and it really does make you want to step out of your comfort zone, I can see you stepping out urther in your future. I'm to new to all of this to know the design name but it reminds me of some of the tulip designs I have seen.

    I think "old lady" translates to "traditional, with flowers." I don't think I'm an old lady yet (although my kids would probably disagree), but I love your quilt! The quilting is spectacular!

    I love it! Does that mean my age is showing?

    Nice job on the quilting.
