Mara's Flowers Garden

I was trying to think of something to give my friend, Mara for her birthday. DUH~how 'bout a quilt?! Mara's family makes quilts but mostly the tied variety and she has admired the quilting of my quilts in the past. On the first Saturday in February, I meet up with the members of the Charity Quilt arm of the Oconomowoc Quilters to cut and kit quilts for donations. One of the patterns was this Big Brick pattern from AZ Blankets.

I know Mara loves flowers so I went into the flower stash and cut some bricks. I modified the pattern by adding one brick to each row and two more rows to the length. I decided I wanted it wider so I added the green border. It does make it a little long~but Mara's bf is over 6 foot tall so he should be able to wrap up in it too! and I am sure that the flowers won't bother him! LOL.

I tried to get a close up of the quilting but it just doesn't show.  :(

A great gift for a friend's birthday. I'm sure she will love it even more because you made it specifically for her.
