    This is the quilt I made for Mama's 81st birthday. Her favorite pattern is "stars" and her favorite colors are pink, burgandy, and sage. Please note the label, made by SandPat. Mama told me once, "You don't know it but I'm your best friend." I never forgot that.

    There are two sets of attachments.

    Marvin and I say, "YES!" We have a tiny bedroom for you, but I'll share my beautiful sewing room with you. You are moving in, aren't you?

    This isn't just a ploy to get a hand-made quilt, is it? :twisted:

    LOL!

    Alaskan Lady,
    The finished size is the top of a queen bed.

    Mama does love it! She is so proud, she is showing it off to her church!
    Thank you for your positive feedback.

    Things I learned on this Fun and Done quilt:

    16 inch blocks are too big. When it comes to adding borders, the bulk gets in the way. 12 inch is the biggest I will do next time.

    Topstitch all the sashing.

    Don't add cornerstones. The seams never quite matched up. (Remember, I am a newbie on the sewing machine.)

    This was wonderful for hand quilting. Just big enough to do pretty things.

    It was great NOT to have to sew on binding (my favorite part!)
