    I just made this for my step-daughter Christie's 30th birthday. It was on the cover of October's American Patchwork & Quilting. This is one I was wishing I kept for myself! lol!!!

    And my next birthday quilt isn't due until the end of October... :D I'm excited about making one just for fun now! :D

    Well if she don't like it, I would be happy to give you a real smile for it!

    I bet she was thrilled to receive this beautiful quilt! She's the right age to really appreciate it, too.

    Can't wait to see the next b-day quilt and the one in between!

    Diana, did you use scraps? I just love how you put the colors. I gotta know, though....hand quilting or machine????? (I still want to hand quilt when I grow up. Until then, I'll just machine quilt. :roll: )

    Thanks, Ducky! Yeap, all scraps/stash except for the border/backing, batting.
    And definitely machine quilted! lol!!! I totally admire (stand in awe of actually!) those who hand quilt, but I don't think I'd have the patience for it. I always want them done yesterday. lol!!! And we have 20 kids/grandkids, so would almost be impossible now anyways! Maybe after I get each of their 'birthday quilts' done, I'll give it a try!

    I like it - I would have wanted to keep it for myself, too.

    I like the way you make the striped blocks with the leaves. Different - worked well.

    Diana -

    We saw that cover and bought the magazine to put in our "someday" stack. Your quilt looks great and the colors are awesome. I can't wait to do one of those - I hope ours turns out as good as yours.
