I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and spring break. I went up north to celebrate my mother-in-law's 84th birthday. Morro Bay, California is so pretty this time of year. This is the quilt I made for her last Christmas. I'm sorry the picture is a bit blurry but it does give you an idea of what the entire quilt looks like.The picture below is a close up of the applique work in the center. I pulled the colors for the flowers from the border. I found the border fabric at the Cotton Ball in Morro Bay many years ago. When I showed it to my mother-in-law she just loved it so I knew then that someday I would use it in a quilt for her.
Here is the quilt on the bed. Althought you can't tell in the picture the goldish yellow on the quilt is the same color on the walls. It looks like the walls are green but they are actually almost the same color as the lightest shade in the quilt.
