    Niece's Quilt

    My darling niece has been so patient in waiting for this quilt. Life got in the way. But now it's finished and ready for delivery tomorrow. I can't wait to see how she likes it.

    My DH found a cutout of a tree with no leaves and thought that would be a good design to use to quilt it (hardest thing I ever did). Seemed take forever. Men can be so helpful. Good idea, lots of work!

    Beautiful quilt! Makes me think that all the leaves that fell from your trees are scattered across the quilt.

    That is a wonderful quilt and I am sure she will tell you it was well worth the wait. I love the colors and the quilting.

    Your niece is going to love it! The first pattern I ever made was the Maple Leaf. My 2 Grandmas taught me how to make it while I was recovering from my hysterectomy. Lots of memories made and will be cherished forever!
