Today I went to my Monthly Mini class at Hi Fashion. It was great fun but I cannot show you any pictures because these are gifts for my daughters :)
I decided to share another quilt gift I made for my daughter Megan when she graduated from high school in 2007. She wanted yellow and blue, but no floral prints. We somehow made it work with the nice stripe fabric I was able to find and some blues and yellows that read as solids.
My machine quilting and scalloped border are not too bad!
This is a "Puzzle Quilt" because there are 24 blocks but only 12 patterns, yet no two blocks look the same! Each block has a "twin", meaning it's made from the same pattern, but the fabric placement makes the block look completely different. It is really fun to look at it and figure out which two blocks are made from the same pattern.
It's fun looking back at old photos and remembering these quilts I've made and given away. Some I have pictures of and can't remember who I gave them to! I recommend taking a picture of the quilt WITH the person you give it to, then you'll remember :)
Keep on working on those UFOs!
