    Oh Elizabeth, it is so absolutely gorgeous! Your Mom will love it for sure!!! Thank you for the story about how this came to be. I've often thought about your mom's unkind remark to you about the other quilt, and so to hear that when it was finished she told you how much she loved it was soooo good to hear.....you Mom will treasure this quilt for sure :)

    Your words are all so touching. I do hope she likes it, perhaps if she doesn't I'll take you up on that offer Shadow Dancer. :lol:

    What a gorgeous quilt! You Mom will love it. I'm interested in how you did the label. Was it machine embroidered or an iron on? Getting close to being finished on a couple of quilts and I'm looking for ideas how to label. I've never included them before and thought it's about time I start.

    This is incredible. I am an absolute sucker for red and white or red and ecru. I would love to know where you got the pattern. This one will be passed down for generations I am sure.

    Bebe I'm sorry there is no way to show this quilt any other way, it took me nearly a month of trying to get it spread out the way it is for the shot. I simply don't have the area inside my cozy house to take the photo and with all the white I'm not comfortable taking it outside. My mom is really into things being "clean" and I wouldn't want to mess it up. In fact the image you see is the first time I got to see it spread out myself even though I was working on it. :roll:

    quiltsRfun The label. I ironed down 1/4" or so down behind then I pinned the heck out of it and sewed on top with a decorative stitch (it looks sort of like stars/snowflakes). I have also sewn a label right sides together on interfacing ,cut the interfacing flipped it right ways out, ironed on and sewed the edges. I love a good blanket stitch for getting things like that.

    Mrs. Mel the pattern is called Wintergraphix I found it some months ago and one of the ladies on the board was kind enough to print out the pattern and mail it to me (thank goodness I had that). Oh and I doubled the pattern... http://www.inthebeginningfabrics.com...tergraphix.pdf

    Yes, Elizabeth, as mentioned in our PM -- I DO SEE the individual blocks. Thanks for pointing them out to me. Fantastic job.

    Yes the "blocks" that sew together to make up the pattern is part of what makes the pattern so easy to follow. :)
