    Thanks to a kind Board member I got the blocks I was missing from the April Shop Hop and completed the quilt yesterday. I used a butterfly block from Quilterscache instead of the one they provided. It will be a late Mother's Day gift for my mom. She is 86 and loosing her eyesight so I think she will appreciate the large colorful blocks. It is hand quilted.

    that is beautiful! I only had time to find five or 6.

    And hand quilting just blows me away- the time and talent!

    Lovely. She will love it too. I'm working on mine a block at a time. So far, I have the Bachelor's Buttons and the Tulips. Next, the yellow rose. It's such a pretty quilt. And FREE is a very good price.

    Thanks for all the kind words. It took we about 6 weeks to quilt. Hubby is working out of state so I have extra time on my hands and can quilt as long as my fingers will let me. Kinda rushed this one because I wanted Mom to have it as close to Mother's Day as possible.

    It turned out great! So bright and pretty.

    I was not able to find any of the blocks due to time constraints for school. Several board members tried to help, but then we experienced some major PC problems. Soooo... Glad you got them and your mom will love it.

    I saved them all, so if you need them, let me know and I'll e-mail them to you.

    Your quilt is beautiful and your Mom is going to love it.
    Did you do the hand quilting? How long did it take you?
