    My #5 quilt. :D
    I made this for my mother. Promised her it would be finished before she came home from the hospital. I met the deadline! I put a label on the back- it is made my her favorite daughter! :lol: ( I am the only daughter so I win by default!) :wink:

    The pattern is called "Breakfast in Bed". They had the 9 patch two colors-I wanted to break up so much green and bring in some of the backing color (the gold/tan paisley) The other blocks are rail fence (off white and green) and just floral squares. I adjusted the sizes so it would be a little smaller. I used a cotton/silk batting and it shrunk 2 inches each way. The finished size is 62 x 50. Should be just right for post surgery napping.

    Mom needs some flowers in her life right now and she loves pansies :!:

    Wahoo!!! Outstanding job! And it doesn't matter that you're the only daughter- you are still the favorite!! I see a lot of hugs and love in your quilt. You've earned yourself a bubble bath.

    It's beautiful, and what better way to recouperate from- well anything, actually, than covered or wrapped in a quilt-- especially one made by the daughter she was blessed with!

    You've definitely earned the "favorite daughter" title. She's obviously a favorite mom!
    Beautiful quilt!

    Good for you! Meeting your deadline! It turned out wonderful! Your "favorite daughter" comment reminded me of a story...happened not too long after hubby and I were married.....

    My hubby ALWAYS tells my mom, "your my favorite mother-in-law" and one time my gramma, bless her heart, was present when he said it, and she got the funniest look on her face and turned to my mother and said "Well....your his ONLY mother-in-law, aren't you?" LOL

    Took it to the hospital today. She loved it. Was a nice surprise for her and on the day that she found out she has to spend 4-5 days more than what she was origionally told. Hope having her flowers makes that go a little easier :!:

    Happy Health New Years to all of you!

    I am sure it will go a long way toward easing the frustration of having to stay longer. I have made lots of quilts and given most of them away and it always tends to brighten the recipient's day. Yours was lovely.

    Thank you!
    I have gotten to meet a lot of nurses and staff at the hospital that quilt. Word has spread and they have been in to see.

    Gives my mom something to focus on besides the pain!
    And her other flowers are wilting away! :wink:

    I just wish the colors would show better in the pictures.
