I made this quilt last year. It was actually my very first non-baby quilt. My mother was going through chemotherapy at the time and I wanted her to have something pretty to snuggle under on the days she wasn't feeling well. It is made from a Fig Tree pattern called Blossom. I ♥ this quilt.
I have been working on one of these for myself for the past few weeks. It really shouldn't have taken me so long to get the top sewn together, but it did. Other quilting commitments kept coming up and I had to put it aside. Thankfully, I decided that the Friday Night Sew-in was the time I could sew for just myself without any guilt.
I can't quite decide if I love the border or not. If I remember correctly, I don't think I loved the border on my mother's quilt at first either. I am sure I will like it much better once the quilting has been done and the binding is on. Though, who knows when that will be.
