I have been dying to share this finished quilt here! My wonderful mother-in-law had a birthday this last week and I've been working on this quilt for her for several months. I had been wanting to make her a quilt, but couldn't decide on a pattern or color scheme. I eventually stopped agonizing over trying to match her decor and decided on yellow and white, since yellow is both our favorite colors. Then I sat back and waited for a pattern to strike me and when I found this Random Ohio Stars pattern (free on Quiltville!) I knew it was perfect.
I love how this turned out, it is sooo beautiful in person. Becky was here for the week, so we got to have a little birthday bash for her and I was so excited for her to open this. I think she really loves it--she took it to work the next day to show everyone :)
This was my first large-scale meandering attempt and it went pretty well. Next time, I will tape down the backing before pinning and I will pin-baste even more.
Here is a little close-up.
I have been asked a few times now if it's hard spending so much time making something I personally love and then giving it away. But, no, it's not. Some people are such blessings in my life and the best way to honor them is to do for them what I know how to do! It's easy to give to someone so wonderful! So, Becky, thank you for being so fabulous. I am blessed to know you and even more blessed to be your daughter-in-law! :)
