Spring Splash for my MIL
1 Attachment(s)
I started this quilt several years ago and finally finished it last month to take to Ohio to give to my MIL who was turning 90. No it wasn't difficult to make but it got misplaced a few times with moves. I also started it b4 I discovered Warm and Natural and wasn't happy with the loft creating wrinkles. I originally wanted to quilt hearts in the spaces around the Ohio star but a friend suggested I do the echo quilting. I think hearts would have been better but my MIL still loved it and I did include some decorative stitched hearts on her label (that had been put on 3 yrs ago ! :p )

That came out great! I love that pattern. I'm going to have to dig it out and make some more. Thanks for the reminder ;-)

Beautiful quilt. Glad you got it finished for your MIL to enjoy - I bet she is very pleased. It is far too pretty to be hiding away as a UFO! Great job.

What a wonderful birthday gift. I can see why your MIL loved it. I think it would have looked just as beautiful with hearts. Sometimes we just have to take our own path despite what others say.
