    I made her the cover quilt from McCall's April issue for Mother's Day. You all can keep a secret, right?

    I think it great was looking at it in the mag but have too many on my list now. Wish my daughter quilted so I could have one for mothers day.

    Leslee,
    I've not spoke with you before but your quilt is so pretty,I just wanted to add my voice. I haven't been quilting very long and am wondering how you got the white to show up between the colored squares? It kind of looks like grout between colorful tiles.

    Oh,yea if you'd like another mom to make a quilt for, I'm available for adoption as I don't have any daughters or daughter-in-laws(yet). :)

    I agree that it looks like tiles, very pretty. I have subscribed to the mag. but haven't gotten it yet. Please tell us more about the construction.

    Beautiful, Leslee! I have this earmarked in my mag to make too. If I didn't have so many special orders to start, I would be working on this right away. I think it would look awesome hanging in my living room. A little spring to lighten everything up after this long winter in the mountains.

    To all who're curious...it wasn't a particularly difficult quilt but it was time consuming! I love to work in miniature and I enjoy applique. Those squares are one and a half inches finished and there are over 160 of them. Each is appliqued in place and the tiny flowers fit in 3" x 5" spaces. For another project, I think I'd make more of the flowers and do a row or so of the squares around them. They really would look cute framed. But an entire quilt again? I dunno...life is short!
