    Mother and son in agreement over the love stitched into a quilt. He'll feel your love wrapped around him when he sleeps beneath it.

    Wink I'd buy a pattern!

    If you ever decided to write up the pattern, I'd be first in line to purchase! Beautiful

    I think my son likes it so much because of the secondary designs. He's doing his PhD in Math and has that kind of mind. He's been urging me to make another of this nature, but it's not easy. I think about it, though...

    Great pattern! I'm trying to pick it apart as you suggested, because it's so intriguing.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Beautiful quilt and what a lucky son to receive his second security and well loved quilt. Love the scenery around you too. Thx for sharing. You are a great Mom to do this for him-we never stop doing for our children do we?

    I don't know if this will help. I made an outline of the templates and scanned it. It's on a standard 8.5" x 11" piece of paper. You'll need 1 kite shape, two right angle triangles, and two of the other triangles for each quarter block. Do be careful, though, because the pattern involves mirror images.

    Love, love, love this quilt! What is the pattern name, please?
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    I call it "Voilą les mūres" or "Blackberries." I'm so glad you like it.

    Way to go, Mom! Neat that he asked for another.
