    I'm sure she will love it, it has a nice fresh modern feel to it and it was made with love from you.

      Your son's girlfriend is going to love the quilt you made for her.
      May she have pleasant dreams beneath it.

        Hey Patti
        I am in love with this quilt. Gimme her address and I will snatch it from her. I adore these colors and the design you created. It looks so cuddly soft too. I really really like this one. You may have to share your layout design?
        hugs to you - thanks for sharing; she is one lucky girl!!

              That is a beautiful quilt. If she doesn't like it take it and beat it with her and then take it back. I threatened my daughter-in-law that way with the quilt I made her and my son for a wedding gift. I didn't have to worry she loved it and I know your son's girlfriend will LOVE LOVE LOVE this one. Great Job.

                  OH! That's beautiful! If she doesn't like it give it to ME! I LIKE IT!

                  Is that a variation on the Turning Twenty or Yellow Brick Road pattern? Love that pattern, which is it?

                  Thanks for sharing, Ms Patticakes!

                      Thank you everyone for such nice comments!
                      I used a layer cake and a jelly roll for this one. Cut the layer cake in 4" and 6" pieces, inserted a 10" contrasting jelly roll strip, then attached another jelly roll strip horizontal on the top. Went together real quick and took me 3 hours to machine quilt.
                      I got the idea from a tutorial on here. I think Natalie did it but I am not sure I followed it exactly. Playing it by ear is my speciality!
                      Take care,
                      Patti

                        Nice job and looking so perfect!
                        Love the layout also and especially the way you quilted the blocks, bringing out the straight lines.
