A finished birthday quilt

A while back I posted about a quilt in process that was going to be given to my mother-in-law for her birthday.  Well the quilt was finished and delivered, but I forgot to take photos!  Fortunately she sent me a couple shots after the fact, including this one of her, the quilt, and the lovely mountains of Reno!
Ironically enough, we decided to give her a quilt because it's cold in Reno; however the weather was beautiful when we were there and now that we're home we've been the ones experiencing below freezing temps, and yes, joined the hundreds (thousands?) of homeowners who have been dealing with frozen and burst pipes thanks to the Polar Vortex.  Fortunately, we've only had damage from the burst pipes in the garage - other people have had much worse.

Linking up with my fellow Whoop-ers!


  1. This looks so nice. You can tell that she loves it. What size square did you start with?

  2. I love this pattern. The rectangles are different and I like that. I went back and looked at the older post. LOL I LOVE that otter batik. I gotta get some of that. Precious. I loved my MIL and the very first quilt I ever made went to her.
